What We Do
We support families in the Tenterden and surrounding villages who may be experiencing difficult times by providing gifts, festive items and food vouchers for a hopefully more enjoyable Christmas.

This is very much a community appeal as we fundraise in collaboration with St Mildred’s and other local churches to provide food vouchers and appeal for donations of gifts for children and food and hygiene bank donations, including festive treat items.

2020 was an incredibly difficult year for so many but generosity was beyond expectation. Our fundraising capabilities this year has already been amazing with support again from the blue token scheme for Tesco Bags of Help and Waitrose Community Scheme and we now have raffles and other events in the run up to our Big Wrap day on 4th December 2021 in St Mildred’s Church. Local schools also hold donation days for children to bring items in to be part of the community scheme. We collate all gifts donated and then wrap them to put in Christmas sacks on 4th December where we welcome volunteer wrappers also. All donation days include Food and Hygiene Bank donations if preferred rather than gifts.

Donation of cash funds can be made by popping in to Shop Around The Clock, Stanley George and St Michaels Post Office where we have collection cans. If you wish to make a cash donation via PayPal please contact us at tenterdenbigwrap@gmail.co.uk You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram as Tenterden Big Wrap with any queries.

For donations, either via a school or to bring to St Mildred’s on 4th December 2021 to be wrapped, the following is a guide:


  • Christmas gifts for children aged from baby to 15
We suggest a spend of up to £10. Smaller items are also very welcome as we will wrap with other items to ensure everyone receives a gift of approximately the same value. All items should be new and with labels. Please kindly avoid PC games, DVD’s, CD’s, weapon related toys and used or damaged items thank you.
