This year we would like to make sure our Foodbank Families are given a little extra something to make their Christmas special and we need your help!!! We hope to give each family a special Santa Sack when they collect their last Foodbank packages before Christmas so throughout December we invite you all to join in our 'Reverse Advent Calendar'-style Appeal to make sure we have plenty of little treats and presents to go in the Sacks so none of our families feel like Father Christmas has forgotten them!!
What is a 'Reverse Advent Calendar'?
Simple- instead of (or as well as!) taking something out of your Advent Calendar each day, you set aside something to donate each day to our Advent Santa Sack collection!! We aren't looking for anything big, just a little Christmas treat of chocolate, sweets or some biscuits to enjoy together; a small activity item for the children like some colouring pencils, a colouring book or a small toy; or even a little Christmas decoration to help make their home feel a little more festive!! Little things for the parents are welcome as well, of course... perhaps a small scented candle, a little bottle of bubble bath, some nuts or a little Christmas Pud to share once the children are asleep!
