Give To Enfield People In Need, This Christmas

14th November 2020

The North Enfield Foodbank’s Reverse Advent Calendar is the perfect way to give to those in need, this Christmas.

We all know how an advent calendar works, where you receive a chocolate or a gift each day leading up to Christmas… Well how about an advent calendar ‘in reverse’ – where you get to give something each day instead?

This festive idea has been inspired by the Trussell Trust, enabling local communities to give to those most in need, in the run up to Christmas.

To take part in our reverse advent calendar collection all you have to do is use the picture attached, to collect and donate our 24 most needed items, starting on Wednesday 18th of November and running it until Friday 11th December 2020.

If you are unable to get any of the items, you can simply replace anything you can’t get hold of with an item of your choice. The 24 items that you are able to donate, will then become Christmas food parcels for those in crisis in Enfield.

On Saturday 12th December our team will be at our foodbank centre ready to receive these donations, but you can also donate these items, by placing them in the donation bins at any of our supermarket collection points. We can also accept these items any time before this date – so feel free to donate earlier if you can!

We’re so grateful to the Enfield community for the continued support of our Foodbank, without our local community we wouldn’t have been able to have feed the 16,000+ people that have needed our help, so far this year.
