Christmas for Vulnerable Families in Cambridge - 06/11/2020

Thank you for your interest in helping out families in need across the city. To try and make things as easy as possible, the City Council have put together some links. The gift links are a little more local than usual as we are trying to encourage sustainability and support for suppliers closer to home. Please feel free however to use a different supplier to those we have listed if you have a preferred option.

Here are the ways you can help:

Gifts: We have wish lists if you would like to choose an item to buy and donate. A local company. Please select cambridge Sustainable Food or postcode CB4 2XF for a free delivery option. Please feel free to team up with other colleagues to make use of the free delivery option.

OR: Please buy a gift that you and your family may love and send it to: Buchan Street Neighbourhood Centre, 6 Buchan Street, Cambridge CB4 2XF.

OR: deliver it to us (between 10 and 2 Monday to Friday)

Food Hampers

Choose to put together a food hamper as part of the foodbank Christmas drive. We aim for all our families to receive one of these.
