In 2018 the Andover foodbank distributed 785 Christmas gift boxes to local children in need in the Test Valley.
The scheme is very simple. Key workers at local agencies and schools identify children for whom a gift box will make a real difference and request a box for a boy or girl of a certain age from the Andover foodbank.
How you can help:
- They need churches, companies, schools and individuals to donate gift boxes or cash.
- Their leaflet gives details of how to make up a box, labels and gift ideas. Click here to view the leaflet
- You can donate online
- They need the gift box or your cash donation by Friday 8 November to ensure that they are given to children by their care worker in early December.
- You should deliver them to the foodbank , who are based at St John the Baptist RC Church, Alexandra Road in Andover.
