Reverse Advent Calendar

Reverse Advent Calendar

As in previous years, it has been decided once again, to collect items for our ‘Reverse Advent Calendar.’

The Reverse Advent Calendar is a simple way to make a big difference to your local and wider community.

It is also a great way to share the true spirit of giving this Christmas.

During Advent rather than sending in money donations with a Christmas card, we ask for items from the list below to be brought into school.  We will be donating hampers to the following:

SVP (St Vincent de Paul)

Local Foodbank

Suggested items:

Toiletries (deodorant, body wash, hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, baby wipes)


Gloves, socks, hats, scarfs

Books, toys, craft items suitable for Christmas (Christmas crackers)

Tinned foods

Pasta Sauces, dried rice, pasta, noodles, biscuits, Christmas Cake, Mince Pies, Crisps, Snacks


Item donations and cards can be brought in from Monday 22 November 2021.

Please do your best to support these invaluable charities.

Please state clearly if your items are for the Reverse Advent Calendar or Friends of Brooms Tombola.

Thank you
