The Bags of Hope campaign is a well-received initiative among our business members and community groups. It gives all employees an opportunity to donate and participate in a great cause that makes a significant difference to those who receive them. The campaign's aim is to provide small festive gifts and winter treats to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, particularly during what can be a difficult and lonely time.

This year we are launching a new initiative 'Knit-in-November'. If you are a knitter or crocheter, or know someone who is, then please get involved.

Follow our progress on our festive campaign here and find out how many #BagsOfHope bags have been donated so far.

Supporting #BagsOfHope is even easier.

Text BAGS to 70580 to donate £3

Texts will cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message.

We're also accepting online donations through our fundraising page | Bags of Hope and accepting donations of items for the bags.

Please contact if you'd like to get involved.

Now more then ever we need business, community and local government to work together so nobody is left behind. Which is why we are asking our friends in the business sector to support our Bags of Hope festive campaign so we can share some hope and inspiration to people in need across our city and county.
