Each year our Reverse Advent Calendar has proved a popular way of showing how Christmas is about giving as well as receiving.
With over 950 people supported last December, and we’re expecting a 61% increase this year, this Reverse Advent Calendar is a wonderful way in which you can help local people in crisis.
To find out how it works and what to do when you have finished collecting all the items, please click here. You will also find a printable version and links to our social media pages where you can follow along each day.
Many thanks to all who plan to join us from Monday 16th November and to all who have already started collecting. Perhaps you would like to follow along with colleagues, friends or family.
Last year, I bought three of each item, stored them in my cupboard and our children put the item into a decorated box each day. What a great way of showing our children the joy of giving.
Please note: For us to have time to sort the food in time for Christmas, donations must be in by Monday 14th December. Any donations given after that date we cannot guarantee with be given out for Christmas but will of course go to supporting those in need of support in the new year.
