Christmas - Reverse Advent Calendar

Reverse Advent Calendar - Every year, we encourage our families to take part in a reverse Advent Calendar (see attached flyer). This is where for each day of advent we ask you to add an item to a box to donate to a Food bank. (But we only ask this if you are in a position to be able to do, and we recognise that this year especially, there may be fewer of you who are able to. Whilst we ask for those of you who are able, we emphasise that this year is an an even more important year than ever, if you may not have done this before and want to make this year, the year you start!).

Our Local Food bank is at the THOMAS Project, next to the chippy on Lazy Hill, and they have asked if you are able to take part, to drop off your boxes on Tuesday 15th December before their final Food Bank Distribution on the 18th December (allowing time for the items to be quarantined first). This is a little earlier than usual, but maybe some days you might be able to 'double' up, or 'just' 15 items would be wonderful too! They have asked if you could give them a call first to arrange a drop off time, if you can please. Unfortunately this year we are unable to offer to take them for you.
