Christmas Parcels December 2009

Thu 17th December 2009 at 12.00 am - 2.00 am

Brigg Rotary Club, with the support of local businesses, will be able to bring a welcome gift in the shape of a Christmas hamper to many families and people in need at the festive season. All hampers are generously stocked with food items especially tailored to this time of year.

Organiser Ambrose Fowler said "Some of the people on my list may only receive this one visit over the Christmas period and the hamper shows that we are thinking of them and trying to make a difference to their otherwise lonely lives.

The gifts are organised and distributed by Brigg Rotarians but the donations come through the generosity of local businesses and other fundraising."

Tesco staff kindly package the items so that they look splendid and brighten delivery day especially for those in need who are still finding it difficult to return to normal after the experience of having their homes flooded, losing a loved one, unemployment or lack of family.
