Could you donate a Real Advent Calendar to a food bank?
Christians across the UK are being encouraged to donate a Real Advent Calendar produced by the Meaningful Chocolate Company to a food bank this Christmas.
You pay £3.40 and the Meaningful Chocolate Company will cover the additional costs of sending a full priced single Real Advent Calendar to the Trussell food bank hub for national distribution.
It's a great way to make sure a family in need receive a Fairtrade Real Advent Calendar this year. Donations need to be made by 20 November.
A spokesman explained: “You won’t receive the calendar – it will be donated to a food bank along with other calendars which have been purchased for donation. Due to logistics it is not possible to nominate a food bank or have calendars delivered to a food bank which you run yourself. We will share news of the donations made just before Christmas.”
The Real Advent Calendar is a fun way for parents, grandparents and Godparents to share the Christmas story. The 2018 design calendar comes with a free 24-page Christmas story activity book designed to be used every day in Advent. This year, the book is illustrated by award-winning artist, Alida Massari.
