Reverse Advent Calendar

Reverse Advent Calendar

This year we are putting together a Reverse Advent calendar, and we’d love to get as many people in the North East to do one too.

What is a Reverse Advent Calendar?

It’s dead simple – get a box and each day in the lead up to Christmas, add in an item of food. It can be a tin of beans, some pasta, chocolate bars – anything! This box can then be taken to any local food bank and will help a family that might be struggling at this time of year!
