Birstall Parish Council’s Christmas hamper cheer for older residents

Birstall Parish Council’s Christmas hamper cheer for older residents

Many years ago, Birstall Parish Council were Trustees of a local charity that ceased to operate.

The original Charity was set up to meet the needs of the elderly and needy in the village and the Parish Council chose to maintain the existing beneficiary list for receipt of a Christmas Hamper.

Over the last few years the beneficiary list has naturally declined and when this was discussed at a recent Council meeting, Councillors decided that this heart-warming initiative should continue. They all agreed that Christmas time is a time of giving and thinking of others and that this gesture captures the very essence of the season, as it spreads joy to some of the most vulnerable people in the Parish.

They decided to develop and grow the list up to a maximum of twenty beneficiaries each year and they are asking for your help by seeking nominations from the community to enable them to continue to do this in December 2019.

The Parish Council are asking for you to nominate someone who is over 70 years of age that you feel deserves or is in need of some Christmas Cheer. Maybe they live alone and/or are on a low income, or for some other reason that you feel makes them eligible to receive a Christmas Hamper.

The nomination form is available on the Parish Council's website: for you to download and complete, there is also a direct link to the form below to enable you to download. once you have completed the form please return it to the Parish Clerk who will acknowledge receipt and confirm whether or not your nomination meets the criteria and has been included on the Beneficiary List.

Nominations will close on 31 October each year to enable the hampers to be ordered and prepared ready for delivery the following December.
