This was the second year in which we had a Reverse Advent Calendar to help local families in need of support and the challenge was to outdo last year’s collection. Last year we donated food items but this time we also had the option to donate gift cards for various supermarkets. This made it easier for those who found it difficult to carry purchases to donate and the charities also benefited by being able to purchase what they were in greatest need of.
This year as well as a considerable volume of food items we had almost £400 in supermarket gift cards. A special ‘Thank you’ to all who donated.
The charities which benefited from your generosity were:
Instant Neighbour, CFine and Cyrenians
