Create & Donate

Stockport Schools Only

Creating and donating your own Secret Santa Hamper is a great way of helping us to achieve our aim of feeding as many vulnerable primary school children as we can this Christmas in Stockport.

If your school community would like to take part, please refer to our “food for thought” section for ideas on what food the pupils, teachers, parents/guardians, can include.

Hampers should be brought to school by Monday 11th December.

Food hamper collection will be between Wednesday 13th and Friday 15th December.

What food should I put in the Secret Santa Hamper?

It's important that the food items within a Secret Santa Hamper can be stored until needed. It's worth remembering that some families do not have access to a cooker and are reliant on a microwave, so please bear this in mind when adding items to your hamper.
