I can’t believe it’s been a year since we kicked off the very first Basket Brigade in Essex! Volunteers from all over the country joined myself and the amazing Yes! Group Essex team to deliver over 200 hampers throughout Basildon, Billericay, and Havering. It was so successful that we are doing it again this year, and with the backing of Mayor of Basildon Cllr Mo Larkin and John Baron MP – it’s going to be even bigger and better! Through fundraising initiatives led by the Yes! Group Essex and donations from the likes of The Hemraj Goyal Foundation, we will be able to deliver eve more baskets this year. However, that’s not to say all the work is done. We do of course need all the help we can with securing food donations and also assistance on the day with packing and delivering the hampers.
