Reverse Advent 2017

Nourish is repeating its successful Reverse Advent Calendar campaign this year – and is hoping to beat last year’s record-breaking donation tally!

Nourish’s Reverse Advent Calendar means doing Advent with a twist: instead of opening a box for a daily treat, people are asked to put an essential food bag item into a box every day during December. As an alternative, making a £3 donation is enough to buy someone in need a foodbag meal over the Christmas period.
