The Marmalade Trust is a charity based in Bristol who understand how difficult Christmas can be for someone who is struggling with loneliness. If you believe that no one should spend the festive season alone if they don’t want to, why not join them as a volunteer?
The Marmalade Trust hold regular lunches in pubs and restaurants throughout Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset in the run up to Christmas. And on the day itself, their volunteers do Christmas doorstep visits, delivering festive hampers full of gifts and bringing a bit of Christmas cheer to those in need.
North Bristol Foodbank - based close to Brabazon in Filton - works to combat poverty and hunger and to support anyone in crisis in the local community.
Whether you can donate time, money or simply a few extra tins from your weekly food shop, North Bristol Foodbank will be hugely grateful for your support as they seek to make a real difference to local people who are struggling this Christmas.
