We are proud to support Merton Giving’s Christmas Appeal for 2020 – A Gift for All.
This year has been especially difficult for so many and so we are hoping to spread some seasonal cheer in support of Merton Giving.
It is so easy to do and together we can make a much bigger difference to those in our community with less this Christmas. We ask that you:
- Please donate a wrapped festive shoebox hamper with food and toiletry items and a treat. If you don’t have a shoe-box, an Amazon box or similar will work fine.
- Please DO wrap and fill your box but do not seal it. Secure if possible with an elastic band.
- Mark on a gift tag who your gift is for: Adult female/Adult male/Young girl/Young boy/Older girl/Older boy/Suits all. For children please indicate approximate age intended for. *Please bear in mind that the majority of our vulnerable residents we’re hoping to gift with a hamper are adult female.*
- Drop it to us! Peacock & Co’s Wimbledon reception will be a drop-off point for donations from the public from Monday 14th – Friday 18th December.
Please donate your box by FRIDAY 18th DECEMBER. All boxes will be distributed to those around us in need. You can also donate to our fundraising.
