You may have seen our 21 Days of Giving Campaign that we launched in December. We asked friends and clients to join in and donate 21 things that would make a Furness family's Christmas a whole lot better, and those who joined us were so generous it was truly humbling. 

J F Hornby and Co Chartered Accountants donated their wonderful tote bags for everyone to add their goodies to, 1 item a day for 21 days of December, and we collected 14 very overflowing bags from the following wonderful people and businesses; 

Emma Athersmith and her lovely mum 

Catherine Jane Thompson 

Karina Gallagher of JF Hornby Corporate Solutions Ltd 

Jackie Baxter of Abbey Mill Coffee Shop 

Jacqui Armstrong from Barrow Market Hall 

Joanne Swanston of The Chunky Monkey Cake Company 

Louise Cook 

Elise Higham and the team at Barclay's Bank 

Jayne L Backhouse of Elegance by Jayne 

And of course thebestof Barrow and Furness team. 

Barrow Food Bank were thrilled to receive our overflowing bags of goodies, which included chocolates, toiletries, wine, luxury biscuits and all the extra things we drop into our supermarket trolleys at Christmas without really thinking about it! We spoke to them prior to dropping off the bags, and they explained that as fast as donations were arriving at the centre in Barrow, they were being sent out to families across Furness who were truly in need.  

So from us here at thebestof, we'd like to say a BIG Thank You to all you wonderful people who supported us, you really bought to life the true meaning of Christmas – thank you. 

And of course let's go bigger and better and help even more families next time.
