Ospreys in the Community, Swansea City Foundation and local MPs join forces for Christmas hamper campaign.
The annual campaign provides festive cheer for people who need a helping hand in the local community.
"When everyone else was pushing the boat out I was worried about just feeding my family, so didn't feel like I was part of Christmas", said Leanne. At Christmas no-one should be worried like Leanne.
This year, with community help, we aim to create 500 £50 food hampers full of staples like cheese, meat, and vegetables, and added goodies like pudding, chocolate and crackers. A large team of volunteers will purchase, pack and deliver the hampers in the days before Christmas.
Swansea City AFC Foundation and the Ospreys in the Community are working with Carolyn Harris MP, Julie James MS, South Wales Evening Post, Swansea Council, Bay Studios, Amazon and very many local businesses, to make this happen.
Christmas should be a time of joy and of giving. By working together, we can ensure that everyone has the joyful Christmas they deserve.
What started a few years ago with a few friends packing hampers on Carolyn Harris’ kitchen table has now developed into a city wide celebration of Christmas spirit with up to 1000 families being targeted this year for hampers and presents.
Carolyn Harris MP was recently named Campaigner of the Year at the Spectator Parliamentarian of The Year Awards.
