Christmas Hamper Project
The project has now closed for 2020. We hope to operate the project in 2021. Nomination forms will be circulated to agencies in Autumn 2021.
A Helping Hand this Christmas
Many people on low incomes are struggling with the rising cost of living and Christmas can be a particularly difficult time with extra expense but no extra money.
A partnership of local organisations asks local businesses, schools, churches and others to collect items from a list of food needed to make up Christmas Food Hampers. In 2020 these hampers were delivered to approximately 250 families and individuals in the Burgess Hill area in time for Christmas.
The groups organising the initiative in 2020 included Burgess Hill District Lions Club, The King’s Church Mid-Sussex, Burgess Hill Community Food Bank, Burgess Hill Town Council and Burgess Hill Youth. Sussex Clubs for Young People also provided support with their Purple Bus to assist with the transportation of food.
