Story

We can't end poverty, but together we can bring some joy and hope to our local friends and neighbours this Christmas.

This is how together we can deliver:

3 days of emergency food for every family or individual referred.

Christmas food parcels

Christmas Day Brunch

Emergency funding for people facing a home emergency

Basic necessities such as clothing, equipment, careers support and signposting

Christmas Gifts to ensure no child has an empty-handed Christmas

People around us this Christmas are going to be facing an impossible choice of heating, paying bills and going without essentials or going in to unaffordable debt.

Adults are telling us they are having smaller meals than usual, or skipping meals or even going a whole day without food because the can't afford to eat. The crisis is set to devastate the budgets of families on lowest incomes, with 30% of their income going to energy bills. Thanks so much for your help.

We meet the practical needs of people who find themselves in need or on the margins of society in Aldershot, Guildford, Woking and surrounding areas. This includes a food bank, essential children's supplies, job club, community lunch, creative workshops, cooking classes, cafe, and lots more!
