Together at Christmas

Bankside and You Opportunity
Better Bankside's annual Christmas gift appeal supports homeless, vulnerably housed and elderly people in Southwark.
Rachel Nicholson
Corporate Responsibility Manager

Better Bankside's Together at Christmas is an annual festive gift appeal that supports over 2,000 homeless, vulnerably housed and elderly people in the Bankside area and across Southwark.

Every year, Better Bankside's business members host collection boxes so that their staff can donate gift items such as warm clothing, toiletries and edible treats.  We collect all of the donated items from businesses in early December, and with the help of teams of volunteers, wrap them to make into gift parcels that we deliver to hostels, sheltered accommodation units and community organisations across Southwark.

If you'd like to sign up to be part of the 2019 appeal, you can register to host a collection box in your business here.  We will be delivering collection boxes to all registered businesses in late October, as well as sharing details of the public donation points around Bankside. 

The volunteer wrapping activities will take place from Monday 9 December through to Thursday 12 December.  More details about these will be announced soon.

If you'd like to find out more about the Together at Christmas appeal and all the different opportunities for your business to get involved, please contact rn [at] (subject: Supporting%20the%20local%20community) (Rachel Nicholson), Corporate Responsibility Manager.
