Our Christmas Appeal is different this year – we are fighting to stay open into the new year, fighting to keep up with increased client numbers and fighting to stay ahead of more lockdowns and Brexit effects.

If you can help in any way please contact us or join our Fundraising Team WhatsApp group

We currently pre-pack food items per person, and offer a small choice of extra hygiene/ cleaning products and small bags of fresh fruit & veg. For children, there are an extra couple of items. Altogether, the value of the bag for a family with children is around £20 – not nearly enough for a whole week, just a top up for a few days when there is nothing else left in the cupboard. We are reluctant to reduce this offer any further, and we are reluctant to turn people away, so we must rapidly reach our fundraising target.

This Christmas, we will still give some chocolates & treats, but probably a smaller offer. Please help us secure a vital community food aid service for people in Bow and Bethnal Green ready for 2021.

Monthly direct debit and one-off donations can be made year round via our Virgin Money Giving page. This site will also allow you to set up your own fundraising appeal page, directly linking your pledges to our account:
