BIG RED BOX Christmas Hampers is a King's Church London initiative supporting those in the local community who might otherwise go without during the festive period.

Since 2011, Big Red Box has been able to give away over 12,000 boxes, distributed to families and individuals in need across SE London through our charity & local authority partners. In 2019 we were able to distribute 2,266 boxes. We could not have done it without the support of the incredible community around us who helped by donating food, money and time to the project.

In 2020, like everything else, things look a bit different and we are working virtually. However we are still looking to support those in the local community who need it most. The best way to help us this year is to visit our donation page and we'll do your shopping for you. As ever, 100% of donations are spent on food.

The best to support us in 2020 is by donating using our JustGiving page. You can check out our Big Red Box fundraising campaign. Every penny raised goes towards buying food for the Big Red Boxes. One box can cost around £30 but anything you can contribute would be very much appreciated.

Store Dates 2020

We are really sorry that due to the impact of Covid-19, we won't be collecting in store this year. We hope to back collecting with our partners at Sainsbury's and Co-Op in 2021.


If you're not able to give a box in person, you can donate to us and we'll do your shopping for you!

You can either give by text, or by using our Just Giving page. For more details, go to the Donate page.

"Where are the places without hope? Let's take boxes to them and brighten them up." Volunteer (2013)


"We had a client in 2016 with no access to any funds, she had children and Big Red Box really helped them to be well fed! They were extremely grateful and said it made a huge difference to their Christmas." Voluntary Services Lewisham (2016)

Giving To Others

This Christmas we will once again be running our Christmas hamper project after its successful launch in 2011. The Big Red Boxes collected will go to the neediest families in our local community.

We would love everyone to be involved in this. For some of us, it will simply be buying one item of food to go in a Big Red Box, for others it will be in buying the food for an entire box.
