We're raising money to give Christmas food to vulnerable members of the community who may otherwise not get to celebrate Christmas this year, and displaying messages on the town's Christmas tree.
With COVID-19 affecting the lives of many of us this year, it is likely that many people in the Mansfield district may not be able to enjoy a Christmas meal due to financial, mental and physical hardship, as well as due to restrictions on social gatherings. That is why we are appealing for support from the public to help us to bring Christmas cheer to those who need it most. Our aim is to raise money so that we can provide and distribute Christmas food hampers via our food clubs. Monetary donations will also go to support soup kitchens, homelessness charities and the Gift of Christmas group. For those who donate £30 or more, a message will be displayed in a bauble on the town's Christmas tree for all the community to see. Leave a comment in the box below and your message could be selected and displayed. Tell us why you're donating. Is it to give thanks for support? To pay tribute to a lost loved one? Or just want to help someone in need?
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Those in need will be given all they require to put together a hot meal on Christmas Day including vegetables, condiments and trimmings. It will also include a money-off voucher for meat from a local butcher. Your donation will help us to subsidise the provision of fresh meat. Plus charities that support the homeless in Mansfield will also benefit as they will receive donations to help them provide essential food via soup kitchens.
Steps to get it done:
This runs as part of the "Bringing Christmas to Mansfield" campaign which also includes a Secret Santa Appeal from 9 November and online Festive Festival on 28 and 29 November via the council's Facebook page @MyMansfieldUK.
