Final touches underway for Big Christmas Get Together!

AS volunteers prepare to deliver hampers to vulnerable and isolated residents on Christmas Day, there is still time to make a donation to support the project.

Organisers say, “Christmas is nearly here and we have started to gather donations and supplies to add to our Christmas Hampers for this year’s Big Christmas Get Together event.

“We want to thank everyone who has donated items, volunteered and supported us so far. We want to thank Active and In Touch and Fair Frome who have helped us plan an event that provides our isolated, vulnerable community members with some company and a Christmas meal on Christmas Day whilst allowing us to support local independent businesses and caterers.

“There is still time for you to get involved and Fair Frome will continue to collect donations of mince pies, Christmas cakes, chocolates and savoury snacks for our hampers in the lead up to Christmas. These can be donated at the food bank points in supermarkets or to Fair Frome.

“We also want to make sure to provide everyone we possibly can with a Christmas Hamper, and if you are a community organisation and you know someone who would like company and lunch on Christmas Day, please get in touch and let us know about them.

“As a community-run event we rely on donations and support from local businesses and community members. We are still running our donation drive throughout December and you can donate via cheque or text by texting FROME CHRISTMAS followed by your do- nation amount to 70460. (texts will cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message).”
