Christmas Hope is Prison Fellowship’s annual project to provide hampers and toys for families at a time of year when those impacted by crime can feel alone, forgotten and under extra financial pressure.
Last year, with the help of faithful volunteers, we distributed 564 food hampers and 720 toy parcels, making a huge difference for many of these families. Items are donated by churches, community groups and individuals just like you!
Each food hamper is worth more than £52 and is made up of various items listed below. Toys are all new and for children aged 0-16.
We are committed to bringing hope and to send a Christmas card to each prisoner in Northern Ireland. All new family contacts will be offered ongoing support by PF family workers in the New Year. Will you help us demonstrate God’s love in a very practical way this year?
PFNI needs your help to make Christmas Hope a success this year. You can purchase items from the food list and toy/gift list, donate financially, volunteer to pack and deliver gifts and become our prayer partner.
If you order online you can deliver directly to our warehouse. Please use the following delivery details:
