Donate to help create festive hampers and bring some cheer this December

Posted on: Monday 18 Oct 2021

Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity (HHCC) are asking for support in providing hampers to bring Christmas to life for families across the region.

Last year the charity provided over 1,000 festive hampers to children, families and young people across County Durham, Darlington, Gateshead, Northumberland, North Yorkshire, Middlesbrough, Stockton-On-Tees and Sunderland.

This year HHCC are asking for local businesses, to donate non-perishable foods, drinks, new books or other festive goodies to fill up this year’s hampers and help those in need.

Yvonne Campbell, Head of Charity and Business Development Project Manager said “Last year we had wonderful feedback from those who received our festive hampers, and after another difficult year we would like to impart the same magical feeling to those who are vulnerable or in need across the HDFT footprint.

“Without the generosity of local business and communities we wouldn’t have been able to achieve this last year and this year we hope to send 1,200 to the community. Any support will make a huge impact to those in need this winter.”

If you would like to contribute towards HHCC’s cause please contact the team to discuss donations further at [email protected] before Thursday 28 October. Please do not drop off any donations before contacting the team.
