It’s the most wonderful time of the year…but for lots of families in the UK, it’s also the most expensive. The Trussell Trust, an NGO, has warned that food bank use is expected to rise this Christmas as people struggle with food poverty and our member BADU Community, which works with families in east London, is well aware of the challenges the community faces year-round – and at Christmas especially.
With that in mind, the company’s launched a seasonal hamper campaign, with support from Plexal and Here East. BADU Community has hand-picked families in east London and will deliver personalised hampers to them filled with festive food, crackers and a present for both parents and kids. And they’d like your support.
If you can, they’re asking for donations on their JustGiving page, which will go towards the hampers. You can also buy pressies from their Amazon wishlist and drop them off (unwrapped) under our tree at Plexal.
BADU Community is accepting donations from now until 12 December, before we gather in Plexal’s Innovation Hub on the 13th to wrap presents and pack the hampers. We hope you’ll support this fantastic campaign.
