Christmas cheer and generosity overflowed from the people of South Bucks this year – more than we could have imagined! Reverse Advent Calendars have been flooding into the foodbank – and to our pick up centres across the area – with people wanting to help those who aren’t in a fortunate position this festive season. We have been given gifts of food in over 300 (yes, 300!) Reverse Advent Calendars – and we know more are still to come. Families, individuals, companies, schools, groups and more had been popping a can or a coin in a box every day in Advent. Many also decorated their boxes and wrote messages of love and goodwill to those who will receive the benefits of their boxes. Click on the gallery below to see lots of photos from the collection over the festive season! Can you spot your gift?

We know we’ll have missed some of you off our list and we are sorry! Let us know and we’ll add you on.
