Our Reverse Advent Calendar

With the season of Christmas almost here we would like to make the children aware of those in need around us and support the children to be generous in sharing what we have with
others. Following the suggestion of one of our parents to create a reverse advent calendar, we have agreed to become a collection centre to support Christians Against Poverty Harrow
(CAP) in their production of Christmas Hampers for their clients (around 25-30 individuals and families) who have found themselves in financial hardship. This national Christian
charity supports the entire community irrespective of faith, race or ethnicity. We would like to invite you to be a part of our school’s reverse advent calendar, if you wish to do so. The
purpose of a reverse advent calendar is to encourage everyone to think about how much we have and to support us in giving a something away each day.

Items for our reverse advent calendar can be brought to school from Monday 20th November until Wednesday 13th December. Each day the children can bring in one item
from the list below and place it in the reverse advent calendar box which will be on the playground. The list is not exhaustive, however, these are the items that CAP Harrow have requested. There are no rules to how much you can bring or which items you bring on which day. Some families may wish to take up the challenge of bringing a small item each day or
may bring one item during the reverse advent calendar period. All items will be given to CAP Harrow before they make their Christmas Hampers to give to their clients.
