Advent begins on Sunday 1st December and this is a chance to give to Bassetlaw Food Bank. Advent is a time of preparation for Christmas when, more usually, it’s a time of cutting back before the ‘big day’. But Bassetlaw Food Bank is encouraging ‘Reverse Advent’ — start with an empty box and add one item of food a day for two weeks.
The Food Bank needs all Christmas donations by Monday 16th December so that volunteers have time to check, sort, and redistribute the items ready for the Christmas period. Reverse Advent donations need to be dropped off at one of the distribution centres in Retford or Worksop.
