Basket Brigade Fund
Each December volunteers come together to transform gathered goods, raised funds and items donated from local companies into baskets of food, presents and luxury items for families and individuals in need at Christmas.
BASKET BRIGADE Nottinghamshire is an annual event run ENTIRELY by volunteers!
This is our 18th year!!!
Each December volunteers come together to transform gathered goods, raised funds and items donated from local companies into baskets of food, presents and luxury items for families and individuals in need at Christmas. With a ‘pass it on message’from the community.
They then deliver these baskets to local families and children in need that have been nominated by social, health professionals and members of the community.
Hundreds of people will receive a basket, with a personalised gift and message. Last year we managed 234 Hampers – this year to celebrate being 18 – we are hoping to reach 250
Each basket comes with a hand written card saying:
Someone in the community has nominated you for a bit of extra love this Festive Season.
Please look after yourself so that you can do this for someone else one day.
Lots of love,
The Basket Brigade
People have said it has given them hope to carry on!
Every single penny of your donation goes in the hampers and will help to spread Love and Joy and the real spirit of Christmas.
