There’s still time to help us help those less fortunate this Christmas

Once again Perry Bishop have set up an advent box in each of their branches, collecting non-perishable foods – including jarred, dried and tinned items. Donations will be shared between local foodbanks, The Big Yellow Bus Project and Open in Cheltenham, with deliveries taking place next Wednesday. All donations are welcome and very gratefully received.

Gloucestershire’s Foodbanks are part of the The Trussell Trust’s network of 428 foodbanks, working to tackle food poverty and hunger in local communities across the UK.

The Big Yellow Bus provides shelter and support for those sleeping rough on our streets in and around Cirencester.

Cheltenham Open Door supports vulnerable, disadvantaged and lonely people in the Cheltenham area.

“It’s very important to spare a thought for those less fortunate in our communities, particularly at this time of year, and we hope to get as many donations as possible,” says Phillip Bishop, Managing Director at Perry Bishop.
