Back to other Community Information

Event Date: 01/12/2017 - 25/12/2017

Why not give something back this Christmas and join in with our Reverse Advent Calendar Project at St. Mary's Church, Sellindge?

Simply take an empty box and each day of December until Christmas add an item to it which we will donate to the Ashford foodbank!

The foodbank suggests the following items would be perfect for your Reverse Advent Calendar Box: Packets of soup, Packets of rice, Packets of pasta, Jars of pasta sauce, Packets of cereal, UHT Milk, Tinned meat & fish, Tinned vegetables, Jars of jam, Tea, coffee & sugar.

If you feel you cannot donate an entire box we would welcome any donations or why not team up with your family, friends and neighbours to fill a box or even fill some boxes at your place of work?

We will collect your Reverse Advent Calendar Boxes on Sunday 7th January at Celebration Praise at 11am at Sellindge Village Hall.
