Christmas Christmas

Supporting Derby Food For Thought Alliance

Derby County Community Trust are delighted to be supporting Derby Food For Thought Alliance and the reverse advent calendar campaign.

Supporting those in need this Christmas, the idea is that starting on November 15th, over the course of 24 days, people collate a range of items which will provide a Christmas dinner to families this festive season.

You can join the campaign at any time and use our handy chart to tick off items collected, either donating them weekly at our regular drop-off point, or at the conclusion of the calendar.
