Typically, the hampers contain essential staples plus some festive treats such as mince pies, biscuits and chocolates. The hampers usually contain a pack of Christmas cards – and the charity even sends its beneficiaries birthday and Christmas cards too.
“The people we send hampers too are often elderly and isolated. Many are widowed or missing loved ones. Some won’t get any other gifts this Christmas. Giving them a hamper shows someone’s thinking of them.”
