Get into the festive spirit – help us fill hampers with treats

23 November, 2018

THERE has been a festive nip in the air this week as the temperatures began to plummet.

The Christmas spirit has well and truly arriving in Islington – but there are few better ways to get in the festive mood than knowing you’re helping someone less fortunate.

As such, we are asking residents to consider donating to our annual Christmas Hamper Appeal. Each year we take a box of treats to bring cheer to residents, including pensioners living alone and families who have gone through severe hardship.

We know that the gifts may not end their struggles, but we hope they will bring a reminder that no one should miss out on the celebrations.

We are also asking people to come up with ideas to raise money, such as pub quizzes or a sponsored run.

And if you know someone deserving of our campaign, please get in touch by emailing hamperappeal@islingtontribune.com

You can send a cheque to ‘Islington Tribune Hamper Fund’, Islington Tribune, 40 Camden Road, London, NW1 9DR, or donate by clicking on the button below:
