In Advent, which begins this year on Sunday 1st December, many children enjoy having an Advent calendar, opening a window every day to follow the Christmas story – and, of course, to eat a chocolate.
As part of our support for our local food bank, this year we’d like to donate 150 Advent calendars so that the children of poorer families aren’t left out. We’ve chosen a calendar that is focused on the Christmas story and includes Fair Trade chocolates.
You can donate money online by going to https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/stjohnsadventcalendarappeal to help us reach our target of £500. Please be generous!
