12 days of Christmas with Andover Food Bank

Every year the foodbank gives Christmas hampers to families and individuals who are struggling. These hampers make an enormous difference to the festive season, helping alleviate the many financial pressures and allowing people to celebrate the season rather than exist through it.

Last year many of you helped by donating items for a hamper through our 12 days to Christmas scheme. They have had lots of requests to run it again this year, so here are the 12 dates with 12 items.

You can follow along adding items on specific days or do your shopping in one go but please deliver to the foodbank during their opening hours (Mon-Fri 9:30-12:30 and Saturday 9:30-12 midday) by Saturday 28th November.
