London Young Labour Winter Social
17th December 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join London Young Labour to celebrate the festive season, and all of the hard work of our members in 2017 – from campaigning to forums to incredible social activism.
We will also be using this opportunity to collect foodbank donations. As we all know, foodbank use and demand has risen massively since 2010 (no prizes for guessing why), and with the inhumane Universal Credit failure still going on, many families will struggle just to eat this holiday season, let alone put on a roast with trimmings.
LYL will be collecting donations in partnership with The Trussell Trust and The Homeles Period. Donations recommended:
– Sanitary towels / tampons
– Toiletries and toilet paper (especially ‘non-essential’ items such as face wash and moisturiser)
– Baby food
– Tin openers
– Foods that are gluten/ lactose free – allergies and intolerances are not a preserve of the middle class and food banks rarely recieve donations of ´free-from´foods
– Alongside your normal tinned or dry foods, some festive items such as stuffing, christmas crackers and gravy would also be appreciated.
For any further information on donations, The Trussell Trust or The Homeless Period, contact Megan Corton Scott on 07800713025
We hope to see many of you there, armed with donations and ready to celebrate the end of an excellent year!
