Timings for the event day on 23rd December

One of the most common questions we’re asked is what are the timings for the 23rd, well below we’ve given you an indication of times. Please understand that these times DO change and will change on the day, depending upon a number of factors.

All the times below are approximate (please be flexible), but are based on our knowledge from previous events:

07:15 – Car Park will open
08:00 – Doors will open – to avoid queuing outside in the cold
08:30 – Registration opens
08:30 – Food deliveries start to arrive
08:30 – Unpacking food deliveries
09:00–14:00 – Basket packing, card writing, ribbon making
13:00 – WAVE 1 drivers released
14:00 – WAVE 2 drivers released
14:30 – WAVE 3 drivers released
15:00 – WAVE 4 drivers released
14:30– Address collection and Venue clean up
15:00 – Celebrate & clean up
16:00 – Non deliver drivers now able to leave car park
17:00 – FINISHED

Based on our experience, most volunteers say they arrive home around 18:00 – 20:00 depending upon the number of deliveries.

If you’re a DELIVERY ONLY driver, then you’re able to select an arrival time slot between 12 – 3pm. You won’t need to leave the car, a team will check you in and then bring the baskets to be delivered along with instructions on how to do deliveries.

If you’d like to attend on the 23rd to help out, please register here.

Of course, all this is NOT POSSIBLE without your amazing generosity. Each basket costs approximately £15, so please donate and help us feed over 6,000 this year.
