Get involved: Together at Christmas 2023



Community / Events / Uncategorized

We are delighted to announce for the first time WeAreWaterloo are partnering with our lovely neighbors over at South Bank BID for our annual Together at Christmas campaign. We are looking for Waterloo and South Bank businesses to support our campaign in which gifts are donated, wrapped and distributed to a variety of fantastic local charities. With the current cost of living crisis plunging thousands of families beneath the poverty line, this year’s campaign is more important than ever. This is how your business can get involved:


We are looking for businesses to donate gifts which will be distributed to local charities in the area including Oasis Waterloo, Waterloo Action Centre and the Drive Forward Foundation. Requested items include chocolates, biscuit tins, toiletries, warm clothes etc.

Businesses sign-up using the link below and donations will be collected by our cargo bikes on Tuesday 12 December. If that day doesn’t work, gifts can be dropped off at one of our community wrapping days on 13-14 December at the Waterloo Action Centre. If you have any questions about the wrapping days, please email:

If you are interested in donating please fill out this form.

Wrapping Days:

Once we have received these donations we are then inviting members of the community to help wrap these gifts at Waterloo Action Centre on Tuesday 13 December and Wednesday 14 December. Anyone is welcome (quite literally “the more the merrier”), as we sing Christmas songs, eat mince pies and do our bit to help those in need this festive season!

You can reserve yourself a space at the wrapping day here.
