Gregson Green’s Five Gold G’s Appeal – Friday 20th December
One of the most-loved events of Gregson Green’s year returns this Christmas as we gather Santa, his sleigh and helpers to appeal for food donations as part of our 5 Gold G’s campaign – Gregson Green’s Gathering Goodwill Gifts.
On Friday 20th December from 5pm Santa and his helpers will be making a special trip to Gregson Lane (and some surrounding streets) and Coupe Green collecting donations of tinned items and non-perishable food. We’ll be supporting local foodbank charities who assist people experiencing difficult times.
To recap, read all about last year’s collection.
Donation Wish List
Pasta, Pasta Sauces, Rice, Rice Sauces, Long Life Milk, Tinned Vegetables/Beans etc, Cereal/Cereal Bars, Biscuits/Puddings, Tea/Coffee, Sweets, chocolate etc…
Soap powders, Fabric conditioners, Washing up liquids, Detergent products, Hygiene care products for adults and children (not specifically sanitary products as we don’t always know if they are suitable.)
Please do not include any perishable, short-dated or out of date products. Please also ensure that all products are unopened.
All donations will be delivered by Gregson Green after our Santa Sleigh Collection so that they can be distributed to those in need for the festive season.
