This is one of the capital's most deprived areas, with a high number of elderly people living alone (and feeling lonely) and too many single parents worried that their children will get involved with gangs.
So it would be nice to make food one less worry over the holidays.
We're giving 300 hampers to the people we know need them the most. They'll be filled with store cupboard basics and some festive luxuries. We're calling it: 'Christmas in a Box'.
But we need your help to make it happen.
Each hamper will cost us £35. For families with several children, the cost will be more.
We're warmly welcoming all donations now.
If £35 for a whole hamper is too much, £5 will buy a Christmas cake for someone who lives alone while £10 will buy a selection of mince pies and chocolates for a family of four.
And in the happy circumstance that we exceed our fundraising target, the money will be carried over into January, where it will be used for our day-to-day food bank. The sad fact is, we know 2021 will bring its own struggles with food poverty.
Do share this link if you feel able. And thanks for reading.
Have a good holiday.
The QCCA Team.
