Share Joy This Christmas!

Updated: Nov 13, 2020

At First Days, we want to work closely with as many local charities, organisations and groups as possible - this Christmas we are working with our good friends at Wokingham Foodbank and Share Wokingham to bring some joy to the families we support in Wokingham Borough!


We will share joy this Christmas by providing gifts, stockings and Christmas food to people who are struggling to afford them. 



With the support of the community, schools, churches and businesses, First Days will be distributing Christmas Stockings and gifts to hundreds of children, accompanied by a special Christmas food and treat box and vouchers for local cafes and businesses from The Foodbank and Share Wokingham. Volunteers will deliver the gifts in the weeks running up to Christmas. 


We are so glad to be working together to help as many people as possible to have an enjoyable and happy Christmas. 


We are lucky to live in a generous and giving community, however, there are also many, many people who are really struggling to make ends meet. We are really pleased to be able to help those people have an enjoyable Christmas, whilst continuing our support all year round. 


As well as working together, all three organisations will continue to support people as normal in the run up to Christmas, which is set to be an incredibly busy time. 


We’d love your donations of brand new toys and gifts for children aged 0-17 and gifts for children to choose to give to their parents as well as Christmas food and treats.

Well, it's September. We have no idea what the next few months will bring for our communities, but, here at First Days the last few months have brought us some much needed clarity. Amongst the unprece
