Welcome to our Thame Community Christmas in a Box virtual shop! (In partnership with Sharing Life Trust and Phoenix Community Club.)
The virtual shop is now closed as all the money needed has been collected and the boxes have been prepared for distribution. Thank you to everyone who has donated. Here is our report on what has been a record year.
The week beginning 14th December was a festive foodie week at Red Kite. Over £2k was given through our virtual online shop which is amazing. Donations from Waitrose Community Fund and Thame Welfare Trust brought the total raised to £3.4k! Although we couldn't have a live collection at Waitrose this year, many people still donated items for the Christmas boxes. This enabled us to pack 186 boxes of Christmas goodies. This is about 80 more than last year. They have now all been delivered to the nominated families and individuals in our community. A huge thank you to the Red Kite team, Phoenix Community Club, Sharing Life Trust and Rotary - we couldn’t have done it without you! The pictures give you some idea of what was involved in putting all the boxes together. Thank you Christchurch for the loan of your hall!
