Having been inspired by David Harrison’s recent foodbank initiatives we are suggesting a Reverse Advent Calender throughout November.The idea is that each day throughout November for people to put a gift into a box at home - either items suitable for foodbank donations or a small present.
Details of suitable items for foodbank donations can be found on the Trussel trust website
The Salvation Army in Penrith have suggested that presents should be geared towards teenage boys and girls eg. Toiletry sets, etc
At the end of November we will round up collected items and bring them to the Penrith salvation army for distribution
Please drop your boxes at Helen and Nick's at Rushgill House in Dockray (coming from A66 turn immediately right after The Royal in Dockray and Rushgill is third on the left) on or before November 30th before 2pm. If you need your contribution collected please contact Helen on firstname.lastname@example.org.
