"Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone." - Charles M. Schulz

The CMPP team are thrilled to launch this year's Christmas Drives! Join our 2017 elf mission and help us to share the joy of Christmas at this festive time of year.

Christmas Food Drive

Farnborough & Aldershot Foodbank work hard throughout the year to provide hampers to those in need. Donate just a couple of items from your trolley the next time you go shopping and help us make a difference this winter. 

Want to get involved? Here's an idea of some of the items that you could donate:

  • Tinned & Dried Goods (e.g. sugar, rice pudding, fruit, sponge puddings, custard, spaghetti, coffee, tea, jam, pickles, chocolate, selection boxes, biscuits, savoury items etc.)
  • Christmas Cake
  • Breakfast Juices
  • Toilet Rolls
  • Sanitary Towels/Tampons
  • Tin Openers
  • Toiletries
  • Baby Food
  • Baby Essentials (e.g. nappies - size 2)

To donate cash to Farnborough Foodbank, please text "Food 29 £10" to 70075.

Christmas Gift Drive

The Christmas Gift Drive has helped out many families in need. Last year CMPP had an extremely successful collection with over 1,100 presents donated from our lovely hardworking partners and associates. 

2017 hopes for the same magical turnout so our little CMPP Christmas Elves can continue to spread love and joy around Rushmoor and the surrounding area! It's not difficult to get involved and makes such a difference to all our beneficiaries. 

Want to make a difference? Here are a few ideas of some of the presents that you could buy (these are only suggestions, please feel free to buy whatever you think the young person (aged 0-25 years) would appreciate):
