Christmas Food Run Saturday 25th November 

Posted On 30th October 2023

I hate to say the “C” word, and yet, Christmas is coming and so it’s time to get ready for the annual Hogsback Christmas ride out! In a change from the traditional hospice toy run, with so many families in food crisis, this year’s Christmas ride supports the North Guildford Food Bank, just a short distance from GHD, where they are working hard to ensure no one goes hungry this Christmas.

If you wish to donate food, the collection point is now with Beth at GHD anytime between now and the morning of the ride. Items they need to make up the special Family Christmas bags include Boxes/tins of Sharing Chocolates, Sweets, Biscuits. Savoury snacks, Gift Toiletries, Tinned Meat (such as Ham), Pasta and Curry Sauces, Pot/Instant Noodles, Laundry Detergent. However, they are grateful for any items they receive!

The North Guildford Food Bank at St Clare’s, Park Barn has been set up to provide temporary help for individuals and families in need in the Guildford area. 

Whether you want to dress up or not, please join Dell and his santas, elves and reindeer on sparkling, tinselled up bikes and trikes, at GHD 09.45 for the ride out on a morning procession through Guildford and surrounding areas
