Harriers Hamper Scamper appeal 2019!

We have been invited again this year to take part in a hamper scamper for local charity CCP. If you haven’t done this before or need a refresher, the charity work with families in the county who have fallen on hard times. For a lot of these families sometimes they have to make the choice between food shopping and keeping a roof over their heads, others are isolated young people.

Each Christmas CCP collect food from local community groups and make these up into food parcels that can be gifted to the families most in need, this can make a huge difference to people who would otherwise struggle during the festive season. You can find out more about CCP here.

So, we are asking our wonderful harrier family to help! Below is a lift of the most needed items to make up each parcel, pick some of the items you’d like to donate and bring them to your run, then at the end of November/start of December we will gather together all of the donations and hand them over to CCP to do the rest.

If you can’t bring your items to a harriers group run, you can drop them off to the wonderful Gill Cameron who has offered the use of her house as a collection hub, or contact me and i’ll try to arrange a meeting point or a collection.

Alternatively, if you’d like to get involved without going out and getting anything yourself, You can make a monetary donation which we will use to do one big group shop to ensure we have a range of all the requested items. (proof of total donations and cost of purchases made with donations will be provided)

Please remember, if you can’t/don’t want to donate, there is NO obligation to get involved, all donations can remain anonymous and no one should feel any pressure to bring anything!
