    Story

    Put a smile on a child’s face .

    Present Bank is about local Malvern Hills people helping their community and bringing joy where it matters most.

    We’re on a mission to turn donations into presents and by partnering with our local Food Bank distribute present vouchers to the neediest families in our community.

    For many families, being able to give a present to their child for Christmas or Birthday is just a dream. With your help we will make some of these dreams come true.

    We’re on a mission to turn donations into presents.

    Present Bank will use every penny of your donation to buy Argos vouchers which we give to our local Trussell Trust Foodbank who work with frontline social professionals to identify and distribute vouchers only to known families who need our help the most.

    The Trussell Trust runs our community's local Food Bank and are well known for helping the most needy in our community.

    There are estimated to be around 4.2 million children living in poverty in the UK. Their families are struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table, so presents for children can sometimes be a distant dream. With your help we can do something to help.

    Our plan.

    Our plan is to start small and local. Starting with our local Malvern Hills Food Bank and if we can make a difference here then our plan is to expand the Present Bank project to support more food banks, families and children around the UK.

    Please donate on our Just Giving Page if you can.

      Hi everyone, Thank you so much to everyone who has helped make Present Bank a great success, we are very grateful and humbled by your generosity. Our Just Giving site will end this Monday 7th December, as we need to give the families enough time to buy presents for their children. We can still accept donations after this time, just contact me through Facebook or the Present Bank app. We want Present Bank to help people buy their children presents year round, not just for Christmas.

      Thank you to everyone for your support, its been amazing. I have thought about this for many years especially on Christmas day, half of me over joyed at my boys faces when they see their presents but the other half so guilty because I knew that families would be having a very different Christmas, with many children waking up to nothing or very little. This year I knew I had to do something, with the help of my dear friends Alistair and Michael, Present Bank was started, and thanks to you its going from strength to strength. .
