Christmas time is here; think twinkling lights, festive gatherings and stockings stuffed with goodies.
Yes, Christmas is a magical time for all, but whilst celebrations are underway, it's important to recognise that some may not celebrate quite the way you will this year.
It's time for giving! Giving thanks for all we have and giving back to those who may not have as much.
So this year, we're giving BIG to the West Hampstead Community Food Hub, but we need your help.
Introducing Paramount's Stocking Stop Campaign!Paramount are on a mission to make it the best Christmas ever for the families visiting the food hub this year; here's how you can help.
Fill a stocking with festive goodies and drop it at our office: Paramount Properties, 150 West End Lane, West Hampstead, NW6 1SD.
For every £5 donated, we'll match it and pack a Christmas stocking for the children visiting the hub (Donation link: https://gofund.me/790e6296)
We're taking donations until the 15th of December, join us in making Christmas extra special this year for The West Hampstead Community Food Hub!
FAQs on Paramount's Stocking Stop Campaign
What items should I put in a stocking for the food bank?Because the stockings are more tailored towards children, we would suggest putting items like Christmas-themed chocolates, candy canes and hot chocolate. You can also add creative items too, like Christmas card-making kits, or make your own baubles; we're big on encouraging reading, so putting a book in there would be a great addition, too! Oh, and toiletries! Toiletries are often forgotten about but are super important!
This year we're putting the following items in our stockings: Chocolate gold coins, candy canes, Christmas lollipops, a packet of rowntree's Randoms festive pouch, a festive cake making kit, a hot chocolate snowman bomb and a book.
What items will Paramount be putting in the stockings?
Of course! All donations are most welcome! The food bank is always in need of the following items: non-perishable food items like canned food, soups and sauces, dried goods like pasta, rice and lentils, toiletries, nappies, and formula - anything you can donate will be appreciated!
Can I donate other food items to the food bank too?
Monday to Friday, anytime between 9 am to 6 pm
What time is best to drop food bank items to your office?
No! We actually run Paramount Pantry all year long. Paramount Pantry is an initiative we run in partnership with the foodbank; we are a collection point for the West Hampstead food bank, so from January all the way through to December, you can come and donate!
Will you only be collecting for the West Hampstead food bank at Christmas?
