TimeBank appeals for Christmas gift drive donations

Littleport & Ely TimeBank are appealing for donations towards this year’s Christmas gift drive.

The timebank scheme encourages local people to buy a gift for an adult or child and donate it to a collection point.

The gifts will then be handed out to nominated individuals who are alone/vulnerable who could use a pick-me-up at Christmas.

Gifts can be dropped off at either of the Littleport Co-op stores or Ely Town Centre Costa Coffee shop by Thursday December 17.

When wrapping your gift, ensure it has a removable label attached, stating the gender and age range suitability.
