Of course we’ve had to adapt our usual Christmas gift box campaign, but we’ve found a great alternative to ensure Bankside’s charities don’t miss out on the thousands of gifts we deliver from local businesses and employees. This year we’ve partnered with Borough Market so we can use their Borough elves to help us get Christmas food gifts to the people who need them.
The partnership means the benefit of your donation is two-fold: you’ll be ensuring the homeless and older vulnerable members in our neighbourhood receive Christmas treats, while also supporting the small and independent traders at Borough Market.
Think of all the coffees, lunches and office biscuits you haven’t splurged out on in Bankside while working from home; what better way to put some of these savings back.
We’ll be sharing full details on how the scheme will work very soon. In short, Bankside businesses and staff will be able to donate monetary contributions online towards food gifts, we’ll arrange the orders with Borough Market and then deliver to Bankside’s charities ahead of Christmas.
Why not make it an opportunity for a team initiative to fundraise your businesses contribution? Donate here.
