This year, as part of our Advent preparations we have decided to ask the children to help support our idea for a ‘reverse advent calendar.’ Each day throughout December, a child’s name will be drawn from our class advent calendar and that child, in return for their chocolate treat, will be asked to donate an item of food to a hamper that we will donate to Batchley Support Group food bank in time for Christmas.
We think this is a lovely way to show the children that they can do something small to help support local families in need of help this Christmas. These items can range from tins, packs and long-life products to special biscuits to brighten someone’s day. Toiletries and treats are also very welcome.
Thank you, as always, for your continued support.
