Give the gift of Christmas

It's the most wonderful time of the year - but not for everyone.

Give the gift of Christmas

This year give the gift of Christmas by donating a gift to those less fortunate in our community.

With Christmas fast approaching, Basildon Council are joining with Eastgate Shopping centre to collect gifts for Christmas for those in our borough who have less at this time of year.

We are asking residents of the borough to add a gift to their Christmas shopping with donations being split between the women's refuge, homeless hostel and food banks.

What items can I donate?

We are looking for donations of:

  • Quality clothing
  • Unused or 'nearly new'  toys, games and books (including items suitable for teenagers)
  • Non-perishable food items

Where can I donate my Christmas gift?

Drop your unwrapped gifts at the designated collection points from Thursday, 30 November until Wednesday, 13 December. 

Look out for the "Give your gift here" donation sites at:
