As the festive season approaches, The Local Food Parcels Project team is planning to give out Christmas hampers to local families in crisis. Last year the project told Ash Parish News that they had been overwhelmed by the generosity of the local community. There is however still more work to do and the Food Parcels Project team kindly asks for donations again this year.
