Help a family in need this Christmas : To help celebrate Christmas, Holburn West is encouraging people to have a "Reverse Advent Calendar". How does this work? Rather than treating yourself every day, you get to treat someone who really needs it. Simply get a bag and each day of Advent add a new item. We have produced a calendar to give you suggestions. Each day you can contribute something different. Please do not include Christmas items. After you have filled your bag, bring it to Holburn West between the 6 and 20 January. We will arrange for Instant Neighbour to distribute the goods to help families in the new year. Thank you for your generosity. "Give, and you will receive." Luke 6: 38
