Christmas can be a lonely time for some in Bankside and surrounding areas, so remind them that somebody cares by getting involved in Together at Christmas, our annual festive appeal and help us make a difference to the lives of local homeless, vulnerably housed and elderly people. Each year, Bankside businesses donate 6000+ gift items, which are then wrapped and donated to homeless, vulnerable, and elderly people in Southwark.   

If your organisation would like to host a gift collection box, there's still time to sign up.

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.

This year's wrapping activities will take place on Monday 9, Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 December at the following times:

Lunchtime: 12pm-2pm
Afternoon: 3pm-5pm
Evening: 5.30pm-7.30pm

Our volunteer wrapping sessions are for Bankside businesses only.

Please note, these activities are very popular and are currently fully booked. We have some extra sessions on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 December. If you'd like to check availability for any of these dates, please contact rn [at] betterbankside.co.uk (subject: Volunteer%20gift%20wrapping) (Rachel Nicholson) who will be able to advise you on what spaces are still available.

If you would like to organise an activity for your business, please contact rn [at] betterbankside.co.uk (Rachel Nicholson) to discuss as we may be able to organise a bespoke wrapping session at a different venue, depending on capacity, or advise you on how to organise a wrapping activity in your office.
