As part of Cupboard Love, Bridport Team is distributing 50 children’s stockings to families this Christmas. A dozen folks helped to follow the instructions to make sure that each stocking was individual to a boy or girl of a set age. This year around thirty to forty hampers will also be distributed and these will include a complete Christmas lunch. Twenty other complete Christmas hampers have been donated and are being distributed through the good offices of Bridport Charities to older folks in need. Cupboard Love is also pleased to be able to supply Christmas lunch for the staff and clients of the Exeter Drugs Project. in Bridport this year.

“I just wanted to say what an amazing job you guys have done with the stockings and hampers and to say a massive thank you. It has been an absolute pleasure sharing these gifts with the families we highlighted – seeing their faces and feeling their gratitude is heart warming. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of something so wonderful.”
