Reverse Advent Calendar

Pupils at Dunmow St Mary’s have celebrated advent by participating in the ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ initiative run by Braintree Food Bank. Instead of receiving a gift the children were asked to bring in a particular grocery item for the foodbank each day. Mrs Griffiths, Headteacher, said “Participating in this important initiative has reminded the children that the Christmas spirit is as much about giving as receiving gifts. Even though many of our own families are struggling we have still collected an incredibly generous donation for the food bank which we all hope will help those in crisis over this winter period.”
