Help us to make a difference this Christmas

Help us to provide food and gift hampers to families across Carlisle and the surrounding area

For many, life can be tough

11,700 Children in Cumbria live in poverty, that’s 28% of children in the county.

1 in 10 households live in fuel poverty.

Covid-19 continues to affect many Cumbrian families on low incomes. The impact on jobs and health has pushed many vulnerable families to the brink.

For just £60 you could transform Christmas for a family of four this year. Some families are larger therefore the cost may be slightly higher.

What does the £60 cover?

We’d pack a hamper of essential foods, some Christmas goodies and gifts for all members of the family.

Or you could make up your own hamper and purchase your own gifts.  Click here for a list of suggested foods and gifts.

The hampers will be collected from Hebron Church on Tuesday 21st December.

Please deliver your hamper to Hebron on Monday 20th December.

This year we will:

  • Continue to partner with Social Services and our local authority Health Visitors to identify families in need.
  • With your help we will supply and pack Christmas Hampers with food and gifts.
  • The Social Workers & Health Visitors will then deliver the hampers to those that need a little bit of joy this Christmas.

Years of Experience

We’ve been running this every Christmas since 2009!

During that time with the help of our amazing team of volunteers and partner agencies we have provided 552 Hampers and over 300 gifts to our local homeless hostels in Carlisle.
