Christmas Parcels December 2010

Fri 17th December 2010 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 says "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 cope after the experience of being house bound by the snow and ice for so long and lack of family support when they need it most.

On behalf of all those who will be receiving gifts Ambrose wishes to thank everyone who has given time, food and money in support of this Christmas appeal.
