Christmas Hamper Project

A Helping Hand this Christmas

Hamper Project poster

Although Mid Sussex is perceived to be an affluent area, Christmas can be a particularly difficult time of year for people struggling on low incomes or experiencing a financial crisis.

Thanks to the efforts of a group of local organisations and businesses, Christmas will be a little brighter this year for struggling families and individuals. They will receive a food hamper, packed and delivered by volunteers, to help budgets stretch a bit further and bring some festive cheer this Christmas.

The initiative is being organised by Burgess Hill District Lions Club, The Kings Church Mid-Sussex, Burgess Hill Town Council, Burgess Hill Youth and Burgess Hill Community Food Bank, with additional support from Sussex Clubs for Young People. Local schools and businesses are collecting food items.

If you are able to donate to the hampers full information can be found here  LINK TO POSTER
