Christmas Hampers for local families on low income

Botley Bridges Family Support, The Community Larder, and Food for Charities are again working together to spread some Christmas cheer to local families in Cumnor, Botley and West Oxford.  Last year we distributed over 100 hampers, brimming with a variety of food and gifts, all donated, packed and delivered by local volunteers.

With the continuing pressure on family incomes and rising prices many families find Christmas a difficult time. 

We are  looking to our local community to spread some Christmas cheer. Can you donate?

  • Dried food
  • Fresh fruit- oranges/bananas/ dates/ pineapple
  • Christmas treats
  • Wrapped gifts for children or adults  – with a removable label saying what the gift is and age/gender it is suitable for
  • Non alcoholic drinks

Donations can be dropped off at St Peter and St Pauls Church Hall, Botley on Tuesday  21st December from  10-4pm. If you cannot drop off at these times please email Sue to arrange an alternative venue and time. If you would like to volunteer to take in deliveries, pack hampers or deliver, please contact Sue (details below).

Requests for a hamper from households on a low income can be made by adults in the following ways

  • Online form
  • Download a form from the Botley Bridges website and e-mailing to
  • Completing a form and handing in to your school or pre-school – schools will have hard copies available.

Thank you,

Sue Dowe, Chair of Trustees, Botley Bridges
