As Charles Dickens emphasised so effectively in A Christmas Carol, rejoicing and general good cheer are, and should be, an essential part of Christmas. In this season of goodwill, this year it’s estimated that British families will spend an average £821.25 on gifts, food and drink and decorations At the same foodbanks across the country prepare themselves for the busiest https://www.trusselltrust.org/2018/11/27/foodbanks-christmas-2018/
For the month of December, we will be collecting food donations for the Stroud Food Bank. It’s a great opportunity to clear out your cupboards and help those most in need this Christmas. It would be fantastic if on every visit to Personal Best you could bring one tin of food, (preferably not beans – there is a backlog!) and we will deliver these to the Food bank on the 21st December.
It is a busy month ahead for everyone at PB and we are all looking forward to some well- earned time off at Christmas. We will be open between Christmas and the New Year but only for limited periods, more details of this in our next newsletter. For now, take a bit of time out to read our top tips for avoiding colds and bugs this winter and have a rummage through those kitchen cupboards!
