MC Reverse Advent Calendar Appeal 

This year, we are asking that each form in school creates their own Reverse Advent Calendar Hamper. This means that instead of receiving something from an Advent Calendar each day, we are asking our pupils to donate something which would contribute towards a hamper of items. These will then be passed on to families in our community this Christmas.

If you can offer a donation of any of the following items, please send in to school with your child, or drop off at the school reception. Thank you. 

The following could be included in the hampers: 

  • A box to put all items in, presented nicely, maybe wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper.  
  • Toy – could be for any age child but must be new.  
  • Pencils, crayons, paper, colouring books (all new) 
  • Nice smelling candle 
  • Books/ notepads/ Sudoku/ Crosswords 
  • Hats, gloves, scarves 
  • Socks 
  • Table Cloth/ Napkins/ Christmas Crackers/ Paper plates 
  • Make up, toiletries, gift set of toiletries. 
  • Baby clothing 
  • Toothbrushes/ Toothpaste 
  • Arts and crafts, jigsaws 
  • Bath towels, hand towels, blankets, bedding items 
  • Tinned goods: Potatoes, Tinned pies or stew, Tinned Vegetables 
  • Steamed Pudding (Tinned, or dated after Christmas. E.G Christmas Pudding)  
  • Custard (tinned or powdered)
