'Thank you so much for all you have done, it was such a heart-warming hamper to receive, truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.  It’s been such a tough year and it’s people like you who make a difference.'

Thank you for choosing to support the K+C Christmas Collective, we're thrilled you would like to help us ensure that our neighbours have full tummies and warm hearts this Christmas. 

As we approach the festive season, a combination of factors including the end of furlough, the reduction in Universal Credit and rising fuel prices, mean that many people in our community are struggling to get by.

Last year, you helped us to reach 8,365 residents who were in financial hardship or facing a lonely and isolated Christmas. We were able to deliver a delicious Christmas meal along with some small gifts to let them know they weren’t forgotten, and the response was overwhelming.

This year, we want to bring that same good cheer to our community and we need your help.

We need to raise £144,000 to reach the families and elderly and vulnerable single residents we’ve identified who need our help.

  • £20 could fund a Christmas box for an elderly or vulnerable single resident

  • £40 could fund a Christmas box for a family in hardship

Please donate as much as you can to help us ensure none of our residents are forgotten this Christmas.*
*any funds raised above our target will be used to support isolated and vulnerable residents in Kensington + Chelsea.

We get lots of questions on whether you can donate toys and gifts instead and the answer is yes of course! We would be thrilled if you can donate brand new, gender neutral toys/gifts that aren't too bulky or big as this will allow us to pack them more easily.


We have set up wishlists with Amazon and local bookshop Lutyens and Rubinstein to help with inspiration. Any items from here will be automatically sent to our partner ogranisation SMART where gift packing will take place.


If you would like drop off toys/gifts you have bought, please bring them to SMART at the following address:
