The Gift has over many years provided food parcels to people experiencing hardship in Tonbridge, helping to relieve immediate stress and restore hope.
This Christmas we are supporting Royal Rise Primary School with their theme of ‘generous giving’. This initiative of generosity fits well with one of River Church’s Kingdom Cultures and we are delighted to be able to play our part. The plan is that the children will be able to choose from a collection of small gifts suitable for adults to wrap and give at Christmas. Financial donations can be made directly to River Church which we will then transfer to the school so that they can buy the presents. To donate in this way please do so from our Donate page and make sure to tag the donation as "Gift".
The Gift also continues to partner with the FEAST initiative. See details in the FEAST section below.
FEAST is a food project based in Kent. It was established in 2018 as a lunch project welcoming local children and their families providing healthy hot meals during school holidays. In August FEAST launched a community larder called Feast Fresh. This offers fresh produce alongside food cupboard essentials for a small donation.
If you would like to help FEAST this Christmas you can either help at the FEAST lunch on Tuesday 21 December or alternatively help to make up food parcels on Wednesday 22nd December. Both events will be at Tonbridge Methodist Church and whilst timings have to be finalised will probably be in the morning and over lunchtime. Please contact us if you can help - thanks!
