Reverse Advent Calendar - Learning & Development
This year to get in the spirit of Christmas Learning and Development hosted a reverse advent calendar to benefit those most in need at this time of year.
Instead of taking something from an advent calendar, we instead invited staff to give what they could spare in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
The incredible generosity of staff from across the organisation filled three large boxes with store cupboard items, toiletries and Christmas treats. Last week we donated these boxes to the Trussell Trust food bank in Bootle, where organiser Debbie King told us that on the previous day they had provided food for 150 people.
Due to unprecedented demand the food bank was running low on supplies, so our contribution was well time and very well received.
We would like to thank everyone for their donations and wish you all a wonderful New Year.
