From Thursday 16th November until Monday 4th December Borough Market will be taking part in the Better Bankside's "Together at Christmas" campaign.
The campaign is an opportunity to donate a special gift to those less fortunate in the SE1 community during the festive period. Recipients of gifts will include local homeless hostels, day centres and supported accommodation.
If you would like to take part and donate a gift, Borough Market will be hosting a collection point in our Information Office in Three Crown Sqaure.
If you are stuck for ideas for gifts, please find suggestions below for the most needed (unwrapped) items:
- New warm clothing items particularly men’s - warm socks, gloves, hats, joggers
- Toiletries (essentials: disposable razors, shaving foam, deodorant, towels; luxuries: shower gel, moisturisers)
- Festive non-perishable food – luxury treats, chocolates, Christmas puddings
Please avoid alcohol and anything second-hand, as these are special gifts rather than charity shop donations.
Last year’s campaign made a difference to over 1,600 local people, and with your help we hope to do the same again this year.
