Reverse Advent Calendar

Donations make a big difference.

For the second year running Kennet Valley Primary has organised a reverse twelve days of Christmas event.

This fantastic idea means, rather than the children opening an advent calendar and receiving a gift, they instead are encouraged to donate specific food and toiletry items which for the Trussell Trust food bank in Devizes.

The children, parents and local residents all responded amazingly well, very quickly filling the twelve baskets with items, exceeding last years’ impressive collection with 344 items donated.

The pupils delivered the items directly to the food bank, where they were shown around and told about how the food bank works.
