Mayfield View’s Reverse Advent Calendar
In the countdown to Christmas, homes up and down the country will be opening their advent calendars. This year, Mayfield View are looking to reverse things and give something back to the community. The Reverse Advent Calendar encourages staff and others to do the giving and donate something during advent. Donations will delivered to the local food bank, The Trusssel Trust, to help others during the festive period.
Katie Cliff, Home Manager said “I thought that it was the perfect way to give something back to the community. We created a calendar of donation ideas, and asked staff to donate what they could. We are overwhelmed by the contributions and are proud to donate to such a great charity.”
This initiative isn’t just about encouraging people to make a donation to the local food bank, but to raise awareness, during the month of December, about food poverty and how everyone can help. If you would like to take part, all you need to do is find a box, add whatever items you can throughout the month and then donate it to a local food bank / charity.
