Are you doing Secret Santa this Christmas?… We are, but this year we are doing it a little differently.
Launched by our client and friends at Majik House, ‘Operation Secret Santa’ is a concept that aims to make a difference to struggling families lives this Christmas. Instead of doing a traditional Secret Santa, where the team gift presents to each other, the budget is used to buy food for the Foodbank.
At this time of the year, a time that is meant to be magical for all, there are unfortunately families that might not be able to experience a magical Christmas. “The Independent” revealed that nearly 4 Million adults were forced to use a Foodbank in the UK this year, this is 1 in 14 adults.
The figures are heartbreaking, this is why we are doing our bit to ensure that the families in our area don’t go hungry this Christmas. We are giving our donations to the Morecambe Bay Foodbank, who between April 2017 and March 2018, helped 1229 families with children in Morecambe.
On their website, Morecambe Bay Foodbank provide a shopping list of items that they are in urgent need of, these include:
- fruit juice
- long life milk
- instant mash potato
- sponge pudding
- wrapped biscuits
- pasta sauce
- soap and shower gel
- loo roll
- toothbrushes and toothpaste
- feminine hygiene items
- baby milk
If you are unsure what to donate, have a look on your local foodbank’s website, they might tell you what they are in need of. Every donation counts, so even if you’re a small team you can get involved.
So why not change lives this Christmas by picking the foodbank out of the hat this year?
