Last year we were able to provide a fantastic amount of help to our local food bank and hope to the same if not better again this year.  I am organising  the  `reverse advent calendar’ again to help those families that struggle throughout the year but particularly during the holidays and at Christmas time.    This year we’re going to start a little early to enable us to hand over the food early so it can be distributed with time to spare.

xmasRemember that not only does this reverse calendar give you the feel good factor and help you clear out your cupboards but saves your waist line from those advent chocolates (I’m sure we’ll still have some)!Each day in November and early December at Blandford Kohima office we’ll all bring an item in that adds to a fantastic food hamper (box), by December 8th we’ll hopefully have a feast of food that the food bank will be able to hand out. 

Suggested items.
  • Mince Pies
  • Christmas Pudding
  • Chutneys
  • Selection packs
  • Biscuits
  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Sugar
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Tinned fruit, meat, veg  and soup etc
  • Cereal
  • Angel Delight
  • Crisps
  • Toilet rolls 
  • Flour
The list is endless, however no fresh produce etc.

The box will be situated in the main office for all those wanting to take part.

Let’s see if we can make this year a little better for those worrying how to feed the family!
