Christmas can be a lonely time for some in the Bankside area. You can remind them that somebody cares by getting involved with our annual winter appeal. The Together at Christmas campaign will continue to make a difference to the lives of homeless and vulnerable people.

Last year you made it our biggest collection yet, with 33 local companies hosting boxes to collect over 1800 gifts - this year we want to beat that record and will need your help not only in donating gifts but also to wrap them!

Why not get a team together and come join us for our festive wrapping sessions?

  • Where: no.1 Cathedral Street, SE1 9DE (on the corner of Cathedral Street and Winchester Walk)
  • When: 12pm - 4pm Monday 8th December and 11am - 3pm Tuesday 9th December
  • rsvp by 5th December to info [at] betterbankside.co.uk (subject: Christmas%20Gift%20Wrapping)

  • Festive non-perishable food – luxury treats, chocolates, Christmas puddings
