The festive season is well and truly here! The decorations are up and we are already considering cracking open the mulled wine. During this magical time, we often find ourselves thinking of those who are less fortunate than us. We have put together a few simple ideas to guide you in helping those in need this Christmas.
Reverse Advent Calendar
Reverse advent calendars involve you filling a collection every day with items of food or clothing that can then be taken to a food bank or charity in order to help those less fortunate that are struggling at Christmas time.
This is an amazing activity to do with the whole family. Not only are you collecting for a great cause, but it also teaches your little ones the importance of helping others and seeing the bigger picture at Christmas.
Give Your Time
Charities and food banks often need an extra helping hand, but even more so at Christmas time. Whether you are volunteering in your local charity shop or assisting in nationwide food bank distribution, your time is always a valuable gift.
The team at iCandy were proud to support their local food bank, Preen CIC in Biggleswade with food donations and essential items this Christmas.
