Christmas Hampers for Care Homes project

Helping Our City This Christmas

Portsmouth City Council are promoting a project this year to give a Christmas Hamper to each of the 39 Care Homes in the city.   Your preferences have prevented this content from being loaded. If you have recently changed your preferences, please try reloading the page

Our school has volunteered to create four hampers – one from each year group, as we thought this would be a nice thing to do with our children. Each year group will be provided with a big box to create their hampers.

Portsmouth City Council have suggested that included in each hamper, there should be a mixture of non-perishable food items e.g., chocolates, biscuits, crackers, nibbles. If you wish, some Christmas decorations can also be included (hand- made would be lovely) for the care home, as a perfect gift for them all to enjoy.  There are no limits to what you can include in the hamper, but they ask that the following three simple rules are followed:

  • No alcohol please.
  • No candles / things involving a naked flame!
  • Everything to be in original packaging – so it can easily be cleaned to ensure it is Covid-19 secure.


Children can bring any items for the hampers and give them to their teachers in their classes.  All hamper donations should be brought into school by Friday 11th December 2020.

We hope that you will support Portsmouth City Council and our school with this kind project.
