Forty hampers of Christmas dinner essentials will be on their way to the food bank at The Storehouse in Skegness later this month, thanks to Butlin’s Skegness.

The team at the family holiday resort have been donating non-perishable items such as tinned soup, pasta, tea bags and biscuits since the summer, but they have had a special drive for the festive season by asking different departments to contribute the likes of gravy granules, stuffing mix, tins of mixed vegetables, batter mix, cranberry sauce and mince pies.

These will all go together to create 40 Christmas hampers which Butlin’s will be delivering to The Storehouse in North Parade on December 18.

“As a large business in the area we feel it is essential we support our local community, especially at this time of year,” said Butlin’s Resort Director Chris Baron. “The team have been very enthusiastic in creating the hampers, and we hope it contributes towards a happy Christmas for families that receive them.”
