The Windmill Children’s Centre in New Bradwell has been dubbed ‘Hamper HQ’ where over 170 individual hampers for families across Milton Keynes have been created. These typically include basic food items as well as Christmas treats, selection boxes, toys and gifts for adults.
The hampers will be delivered to some of the hardest hit families over the next two weeks. In total, over 300 MK families will receive hampers or food and gifts.
Alongside other donors which included companies based in MK, schools, charities, faith groups, member of Council and local resident, Worksmart are proud to have donated in this record appeal.
Cllr Zoe Nolan, Cabinet Member for Children and Families, said: “The level of support from our local community has been incredible and has enabled the creation of some wonderful hampers for families. I want to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has been involved in this – from those working across our wonderful Children and Family Centres to the businesses, organisations and individuals who have been so generous.
It has been such a tough year for everyone, and these acts of kindness make a real difference to some of those who may be struggling.”
Andy Nightingale, Worksmart’s Managing Director, said: “I can only echo Cllr Nolan’s comments and am extremely proud that we have, in our own small way, been able to help some of the most needy families in MK.”
