Reverse Advent Calendar 2021

28th October 2021

Can you feel it in the air? 🎄

Christmas is approaching, and now more than ever people in our communities need your help. Let’s exercise our Christmas spirit by giving out to others following along our Reverse Advent calendar this year?

Our Reverse Advent provides the opportunity for you to make a difference during the advent season. Instead of receiving an advent treat each day, you can donate an item on our list to the Foodbank each day for 24 days. It’s a fun way to celebrate Christmas with family, especially kids, as they also learn about kindness and loving others.

Every year we are amazed at people’s generosity and we are very excited to be doing it again.

Sponsor a parcel

If you would like to give this Christmas but don’t have time to get the items, you could sponsor a parcel for £10, £30 or £50.
Donate to Sponsor a Parcel



  1. Set aside each item every day. (Note that you can start whenever you want)
  2. Collect the monetary donation separately.
  3. At the end of the calendar call the Bournemouth Foodbank to arrange the delivery to our warehouse before the 23rd of December

We can’t wait to see how generous you all are this Christmas time — and we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Bournemouth Foodbank!
