Eynsham Community Larder was established in Spring 2020 to help residents of Eynsham and its surrounding villages weather the economic challenges presented by the Coronavirus crisis. Thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses, and volunteers, the Larder now supplies over 30 local households with weekly food boxes. We would now like to make sure that the 47 adults and 63 children currently benefitting from this service (and anyone else identified as in real need in our community) receive some extra support to make this difficult Christmas as merry as possible.
With your help, each household will receive an additional box of Christmas snacks, treats, and essentials - including everything from pies and puddings to cakes, crackers, crisps, chocolates, and cards.
If we raise enough funds we would also like to offer eligible households some vouchers for Golsby's Butchers and The Market Garden, as well as a meal voucher for one of our excellent local Gastropubs, cafes, or restaurants.
We hope - through fundraising and donations - to be able to put together around 30 Christmas food and treats boxes. Any surplus funding will be ploughed back into the regular Eynsham Community Larder (a collaboration between Eynsham Heroes Coronavirus Support Network and Eynsham Baptist Church, Chair: Sean James Grace / Treasurer: Bob Thiele).
Thanks in advance for your generous donations. Your help is greatly appreciated.
