Over Christmas 2010 Swindon Foodbank was overwhelmed by the generosity of the people of Swindon. We received some incredibly generous gifts, of both money and food.
Many people gave donations to Swindon Foodbank instead of sending Christmas cards to friends and family. And Gateway Church Swindon once again gave us gifts for us to distribute to our clients along with their foodbank boxes.
It was so special to be able to give extra Christmas treats and presents to those who came in to us in the last two weeks before Christmas - Christmas is an extra hard time to be in such difficult circumstances, and receiving this extra piece of care and seeing they would still be able to celebrate Christmas with some treats put smiles on many faces. We still had some treats to give away in the first week of January as well, which can also be a dark time when the bright celebrations of Christmas are over.
To everyone who donated to us over Christmas - thank you so much, you made a big difference to many people.
