Summer is a really tough time for many individuals and families if they have, for any reason, been struggling to put food on their tables. During summer holidays when children aren’t having meals at school, times can get even tougher.

The 2nd Marlow Bottom Brownies heard about this and decided that they wanted to do something to help. Brownies promise to ‘think of others before themselves and do a good turn every day!’ So they got in touch with us at the foodbank and let us know about their idea – the Summer Holiday Countdown Calendar!

kids-with-box-001It’s a fun way of encouraging children to collect food for the foodbank while getting really excited about the summer holidays.

You can take part in the Summer Holiday Countdown Calendar appeal as a family, a class, a group, a pre-school or school, a Beaver, Rainbow, Brownie or Cub unit, a faith group or even a business.

Anybody can get involved in making life just a bit easier for those in a tough spot.

It’s a simple idea – grab a box, pop in a gift each day between the beginning of July and the start of the summer break. Drop it off at the foodbank and see lives changes for the better.
