Testimonials

We love hearing from people that we have helped. Here are just some of their lovely comments in response to the help we have provided.

To all who run Diamond Hampers, support staff and volunteers.
In the present social climate many people are, and no doubt with the government removing the Universal Credit top up, and furlough being removed at some point, hence a percentage of those affected will be forced onto UC.
But yourselves, acting as a social net and providing help for those who are unfortunately affected, is in essence a godsend for myself and many others, winter is approaching and the sad expectancy that the choice between heating and eating will rear its ugly head. Yourselves & volunteers are always cheerful and make it, less of a call or conversation, that for some people can find difficult, as no one really wants to be perceived as being needy and I would guess some are embarrassed to be in that situation. However, it is a need not situation as your warmth and kindness soon puts that to bed, i hope anyone struggling, picks up the phone or visits your lovely shop.
As a final point, your food parcels are not only gratefully received, but contain what is needed to make some healthy meals and balanced, with fruit Etc (didn’t eat fruit but do now). Also your volunteers always turn up on allocated slots without fail.
Thank you for your help and kind wishes to all involved in your fantastic endeavour.

Good morning, once again you have made me cry, in a good way. Thank you so much for my sons Easter bag, it is so very kind and thoughtful!

I've sorted through the hamper that was donated to me and everything that i got was brilliant. i think its such a great idea and a big help for the people who are moving on into their own flat. i think that all young people should get a hamper when they are moving on because it really is helpful and with the budget that we live on it is quite difficult to buy all the simple things we need. every little donation helps! the food is really useful as-well because for a little bit i wont need to buy some food so i cant put the money that i spend on food towards moving on.
thank you so much for the hamper !

 

Im a single mum to three gorgeous children. Im on a very low income and was really struggling, embarrassed to use food banks or even ask for help. Me and my children would go without. I came across diamond hampers who really helped more then they could imagine. With food, clothes, and even someone to talk too. Without these i dont know where we would be. Xx

 

It was like an amazing Christmas morning unpacking those bags!! We've had meatballs and pasta for tea followed by a bread & butter pudding I made then fruit we are all very, very full up for the first time in a long time. Thankyou and Thankyou Diamond Hampers for helping us and making this difficult time that bit easier to manage.
