Support your local Foodbank this Christmas

B-inspired News   •   November 8th, 2021

B-inspired is expecting to help support over 160 people on the Braunstone Estate this Christmas.  Around the Christmas period we ask the community to help support a local charity and this year will be no different. The pandemic has affected the most vulnerable in society the most and lots of people have had changes to their financial situations meaning this year, more than ever, we are expecting the need in the Braunstone Community to grow again.

There are a few things you can do help us support those less fortunate.  Braunstone Foodshare is running a ‘12 Days of Christmas’ reverse advent calendar campaign up to Christmas.  The idea is, on the first 12 days of Christmas, you place a food item in a box and then donate it to your local foodbank.  We have designed our campaign around giving people a Christmas Dinner in a box, to ensure everyone can have a special day. (It’s great for kids to get involved with the wrapping of the boxes and learn the fantastic lesson in the value in giving to those less fortunate).

We have put together a list of items that would be suitable for boxes, to give you some inspiration.  If you are planning on donating to this campaign, please feel free to add little extras and size up if you wish to donate a family box.

Here’s what we’re looking for this year….

Braunstone Foodshare 12 days of christmas

If you can deliver your Christmas boxes by Monday 15th of December to B-inspired’s Neighbourhood Support Base on Gallards Hill, Braunstone, LE3 1RG that would be fantastic.

We will be distributing them in the community on the run up to Christmas.  If you can drive, we always welcome support with this, so if you’re able to help volunteer for a few hours, we be very grateful all the help we can get to ensure hundreds of people have a good Christmas in Braunstone.
