Acton Gardens deliver hundreds of Christmas Hampers to residents!

The Acton Gardens regeneration team recently secured £7,000 from the Countryside Communities Fund to deliver over 700 hundred Christmas hampers to residents and their families across Acton Gardens and the South Acton Estate.  

Last week, the regeneration team met with volunteers from the local community to assemble the bags at the Acton Gardens Community Centre. Hampers for families and sheltered residents were packed with a range of items including hot chocolate, coffee, honey, snacks, mince pies and fresh fruit including apples, oranges and even pineapples. Children’s Christmas goody bags filled with sketchpads, activity books, pens, pencils, toys, games and chocolates were also put together.

The bags were distributed by the Acton Gardens regeneration team, local volunteers and staff from social enterprise, Cultivate London, by hand – using vans, wheelbarrows and foot power to the following local organisations:

• Berrymede Junior School
• Berrymede Infant School
• South Acton Children’s Centre
• Bollo Brook Youth Club
• United Anglo Caribbean Society
• South Acton Sheltered Schemes
• Housing for Women (refuge accommodation and specialist support for women and their children)

We hope that this project has helped to put smiles on residents' faces during such uncertain times.
