Reverse Advent box challenge

foodbank2We all want to ensure that no-one in our local community has to go hungry and Corby Food Bank fulfills a vital role in ensuring that those in need get help. Christmas, for all its treasures, can be a time of enormous stress for families, something to be dreaded rather than enjoyed and celebrated.

With that in mind the team at St Mary Magdalene Church would like to invite you to join them in their Christmas challenge for Corby Food Bank.

The idea is that you fill a box with one item each day during November (the reverse of taking a treat out of your Advent calendar).

Your completed boxes can be taken along to our local church’s joint benefice Advent Service at Rockingham Church on Sunday 27 November, 10.30am.

Alternatively you can take your box to Cottingham Primary School, St Mary Magdalene Church, Cottingham or contact Kathryne on, telephone 07870 101658. The St Mary Magdalene team will ensure that all boxes are delivered swiftly to Corby Food Bank for them to distribute before Christmas.

Do join them in helping people less fortunate than ourselves. Go to for further information about their work or to find a list of food items to include.

Thank you.
