Dorchester Holiday Food Club are also really pleased to let you know that this Christmas they are again working with the students and staff at The Thomas Hardye School and the Food Bank to offer you a hamper of Christmas treats!  The hampers will contain items such as mince pies, Christmas pudding, biscuits, crisps and chocolates.  We hope to also offer some tins and packets from the Food Bank.

As they did last Christmas, hampers will be distributed from 10.30 am – 12 noon on Saturday 21st December from the Sixth Form Centre at The Thomas Hardye School (accessed via the Coburg Road entrance).  Parking is available on site outside the 6th Form Centre – you will be directed on arrival.  As always, we do need you to let us know if you would like a hamper so that we can prepare one for you – all you need to do is send an email to  dorchesterhfc@gmail.com and let them know how many people in your family.

Please send email by Friday 6th December to ensure we prepare enough hampers.  

The Dorchester Holiday Food Club look  forward to hearing from you soon!

If you are eligible for free school meals and haven’t yet taken this up please feel welcome to contact myself and I can help you with menu choices.
