Once again this year, Hounslow Community Foodbox will be sending out Christmas Hampers to local residents.

Over 400 households are set to receive a package of seasonal items picked and packed by a team of volunteers. The hampers are filled with produce donated by local people and businesses.

The initiative is sponsored by Brentford Football Club and Alexanders which has allowed its warehouse to be used as a base for packing. This removal and storage specialist company have consistently supported Foodbox over the years and it is their vans and drivers who will deliver the hampers across the borough next week.

The Christmas campaign is shown through a video made in collaboration with The Bees, some of whose star players feature in the film.

The campaign follows the successful ‘Remember November’ where yet again borough residents and businesses dug deep to provide large donations of cash and items of food, toiletries and household essentials. Things are still tough for many in the borough and during the past year Hounslow Community FoodBox has helped more than 8000 adults and children.

Hounslow Community Foodbox collects food parcel donations at the Rose Community Centre in Brentford (TW8 8NT).

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
