Christmas can be a lonely time for some in Bankside and surrounding areas, so remind them that somebody cares by getting involved in our annual festive appeal and help us continue to make a difference to the lives of local homeless, vulnerably housed and elderly people. Each year, Bankside businesses donate 5000+ gift items, which are then wrapped and donated to homeless, vulnerable, and elderly people in Southwark.
Every year we hold a number of public gift wrapping sessions to help wrap the donated items into parcels so that we can deliver them to the charities in time for their Christmas celebrations. Any time you can volunteer to help is much appreciated - it's always a fun activity, with Christmas music, refreshments and plenty of parcels to wrap.
- Lunchtime: 12pm-2pm
- Afternoon: 2.30pm-5.pm
- Evening: 5.30pm-7.30pm
Please rn [at] betterbankside.co.uk (subject: Wrapping%20sessions) (get in touch with Rachel) to sign up for a wrapping session, either by yourself or with a group of colleagues.
