Why Tenterden Big Wrap & Foodbank Appeal  

“To ensure everyone in our local community have an enjoyable Christmas who may not be in a financial position to do so otherwise by providing gifts and vouchers through fundraising and donations by others in the community.  To also include Food Bank appeal to include more festive donations.”

We invite you to join this community appeal for Christmas gifts and family Food Bank.

In collaboration with St Mildred's, St Michael's, Smallhythe and Zion churches, local schools and organisations, this appeal aims to everyone in Tenterden, St Michael’s and local areas to have an enjoyable Christmas.

There are many ways you can support:

  • Bring a wrapped or unwrapped gift or any Food Bank items to the Woolpack Barn on Saturday 2nd December.
  • If you have a child at one of the local schools, then provide a gift or Food Bank item for them to take to school.  Individual schools will provide instructions.
  • Drop a wrapped or unwrapped gift or Food Bank item into any of the churches at any time.
  • Donate Christmas wrapping paper, Sellotape, labels etc. to any of the mentioned locations.

With regards to gift donations, these are for ages 0 – 19 and we would suggest a spend of £5 - £10.  Gifts can be toys, clothing, colouring sets, toiletry sets etc. or gift cards from WH Smith, Boots or a book store are also welcome.  We are very happy to put together smaller gifts, e.g. pack of pencils and colouring book, together to make a combined gift.
