The Real Christmas Starts Here
Christmas decorations seem to be up early this year but to get us into the true Christmas spirit Harriet Davies – more usually seen crewing on Dragons – is organising an initiative for club members to contribute boxes of vital supplies to the local food bank through a Reverse Advent Calendar – instead of receiving a chocolate you give food or toiletries. In Burnham this goes through the Dengie Food Bank for the area and if you are interested please email Harriet (contact the office for Harriets email address).
There are two Calendars suggesting ways of making appropriate contributions.
One is a list of random ideas of what is welcome in a box, the other is more specific giving you items for each day – take your pick. The plan is to start this on Wednesday 18th November for 25 days. (You can of course start later and put in more each time – missing the date is not an excuse!)
Collection by Harriet or delivery by you to her will be on or by Sunday December 13th (AGM Day). She will send the details when you email her. We are doing this with the help of St Mary’s Church and if you feel the Club system is not for you the church will have a drop off point for any donations of food for the bank.
