Bankside and You Opportunity + News
Can you donate or spare an hour to wrap presents for our Christmas gift campaign?

There are 36 boxes out in Bankside being filled with presents as we speak! This is more than ever before, and so we anticipate that we'll collect over 1500 presents to be gifted to approximately 600 homeless people locally.

Can you help to beautify these presents on 10th December, in a wrapping party in Borough Market? The session will run from 10am-4pm, and there you're help would be appreciated for as long as you can spare. Pop by for an hour, or make a day of it - just let us know what you're planning so that we know to expect you.

Email Liz at lp [at] to sign up for some festive cheer.

You can also donate a gift at the public collection boxes at Better Bankside, Southwark CathedralForster and Borough Market Three Crown Square info point.
