Last year The Church and George Simnett’s took part in the reverse advent calendar, where instead of getting a gift each day from an advent calendar you give something instead. The idea is that people put one item by each day if possible or just give a one off bag of food that will go to a Derby food bank. This year because of the lockdown and Covid restrictions we are asking that when you visit a supermarket like the Coop who have baskets for food banks then buy an extra item each time you go if you can afford it of course and put it in the basket. Everything will make a difference to someone in need this Christmas.
