Turn the advent calendar idea on its head - instead of getting something for yourself each day, you can give people experiencing homelessness the things they need instead.

We hope you will join in this activity for you and your family or get together at work you’ll be surprised at how much you can collect together.

Start off with an empty box and for every day that you would usually open an advent calendar put one of our suggested long-life food or clothing items in the box instead. Your gifts will ensure we have items to help our friends in the New Year and challenging Winter period.

We can accept donations at our Offices from Jan 2nd onwards
Mon – Friday between 10am – 3pm Barnabus, 61 Bloom Street, M1 3LY or email to enquire about a possible collection if required.
