Will You Donate/ Help Wrap Gifts for Together at Christmas?

Bankside and You Opportunity
December 2014: Together at Christmas Gift Collection Boxes are now dispersed around Bankside. Can you support the homeless and vulnerably housed in the area? See where your nearest public gift collection point is!

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 - Let's try and beat that record in 2014!

What Gifts Are Needed?

  • New Warm clothing items particularly Men’s - underpants, warm socks, t-shirts, gloves, hats, joggers, jeans and footwear (size 9-10)
  • Toiletries (Essentials: Disposable razors, shaving foam, deodorant, towels; Luxuries: Shower gel, moisturisers)
  • Festive non-perishable food – luxury treats, chocolates, Christmas puddings
  • Please avoid alcohol and anything second hand (remember these are special gifts, rather than charity shop donations) 

Gift Boxes are being hosted by a number of Bankside businesses until the 5th December.

Public boxes can be found at
