We're raising funds again to deliver Christmas Hampers to families and individuals facing significant challenges in Eastleigh and the surrounding area. Last year we delivered over 70 hampers and we'd love to be able to do the same in 2019!
Those receiving hampers have been referred to ARK Eastleigh by Health Visitors and Social Services and other local organisations for a variety of reasons including social isolation, physical and mental health issues and domestic violence and abuse. Our hampers are packed with everything needed to celebrate Christmas including turkey and all the trimmings, plum pudding, crackers and more. Many thanks to the staff at Tesco Eastleigh who carefully sort and pack our order. We also distribute toys donated by SCRATCH.
Not only do these hampers provide meals for those that might not otherwise eat well in the holidays but send a powerful message to those receiving them that they are loved and cared for.
Large turkey hampers cost £55 and small chicken hampers cost £25. Please consider donating to make someone's Christmas!
Any funds raised in excess of the cost of buying and delivering hampers will be treated as general funds by the charity
ARK Eastleigh serves the vulnerable and excluded in our community
through practical acts of kindness, befriending and informal advocacy.
We work in partnership with other local organisations to reduce social isolation and empower families and individuals to overcome the challenges they face.
