Big Red Box 2017 – The Countdown Begins

It is coming up to that wonderful time of year again and I have already started counting down the days until Christmas! (it’s 83 days by the way). I’m keen I know, but admit it we’ve all got our winter coats out, started wrapping up warm, drinking hot chocolates and dreaming about our perfect Christmas dinner.

Here at Big Red Box we are gearing up to make sure that families and individuals who might otherwise go without at Christmas, can have their own big Christmas feast. Our Christmas hampers are comprised of 20 items which are a mix of essentials and Christmas treats like; tinned veg, pasta, sauces, mince pies and Christmas puddings. Last year we smashed our target and filled enough boxes to bring the 2016 total up to 1760 Big Red Boxes, these were distributed across South East London just in time for Christmas, so a massive thank you to everyone who helped make this possible last year donating; food items, money or your time to help those in need. It never ceases to amaze us how generous people in the community are. Whether you donated one tin, one pound or one hour, it really is the case that a little goes a long way.

Thanks so much to all of those who helped us in 2016, we hope to work with you again this Christmas!

So here we go again, Big Red Box 2017… watch this space to find out; how you can get involved; how many boxes we’ve packed and to see where your donation goes.
