CCP's annual Hamper Scamper seeks to spread the spirit of Christmas and give hope by providing seasonal food parcels and children's gifts to those in need.

Many of those who will be receiving a hamper may be families living on the brink of homelessness and struggling to afford food and heating alongside the expectations of the festive season. Others may be isolated adults and young people, with no friends or family to celebrate this special time of year with. 

To provide this service, we rely on the generosity of our local community for donations of basic food items through to festive provisions. Please help us to spread some cheer to those less fortunate this Christmas.
