Christmas Calendars donated to local foodbanks

Published 6 December 2019

Advent calendars have been handed out by the Cash Wise and Central Debt teams ready for Christmas.

Both teams visited the foodbanks in the district handing out sweet-filled calendars, ready to give to families who would be struggling this Christmas.

The Debt team raised funds to donate their calendars to the Knottingley Foodbank and the Cash wise team alongside the Engagement Team and partner Howdens, all worked together to hand over the chocolate treat to various foodbanks across the area. 

Amanda Sheridan, Cash Wise Team Leader said: “Working in partnership with our local Howdens, we distributed over 350 Advent calendars to our local foodbanks, who work tirelessly to support people in the district who are struggling financially. It was fantastic to be able to donate the calendars to support families during the festive period.”

Karen Jarvis, Business Planning Officer said: “We are really happy to support the festive donations to the food bank. Local food bank’s work hard to ensure people in the district don’t go without food, especially over the Christmas period and the calendars are a real treat for children to help keep the Christmas magic alive during difficult times.”
