Every year the Stroud District Foodbank lovingly prepares over 400 Christmas Hampers that go to local households. These hampers provide some extra treats to bring cheer over the holidays.
This year we are partnering with Nailsworth Rotary and Kids Stuff to provide a book and a gift for children. And with Homestart to provide a craft pack.
Thanks to a generous grant from The Hans Rausing Trust we are also able to provide a delicious cooked meal from The Long Table.
