Make a difference in December
December is always an exciting time – the prospect of celebrations throughout Christmas and New Year, eating and making merry with loved ones, the family and personal traditions we create.
But this period of fun and excess is not enjoyed by everyone. So that’s why, this year, we have joined in with creating a reverse advent calendar* to donate to a local food bank. We are donating our box to Tameside East Foodbank and are enjoying seeing it grow! All tinned and dried goods are welcomed but they have a particular need for tinned meats & fish, fruit & puddings. We are also popping in some mini toiletries and chocolates – it will be Christmas, afterall!
We look forward to handing this over just before Christmas and very much hope it will make someone’s Christmas a little brighter. If there is anything you could donate, no matter how small, then do get involved.
*Reverse advent calendar: pop a tin or dried goods into a box every day and donate the box! Simple!
