BPSPA Reverse Advent Calendar

In the spirit of Christmas giving, the BPSPA are bringing back the Reverse Advent Calendar this year. We are asking our lovely Beechwood families to bring a couple of items into school to donate to those people in our communities who rely on food banks to survive. Each day from Monday 5th December until the end of term we will be collecting donations at school to pass on to the Trussell Trust in Dunstable who will collect and distribute the kind donations from you all. In order to ensure an even spread, we have allocated items across the year groups which we hope will be a helpful guide. They are also always appreciative of toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste. Boxes will be left in the junior department hall, middle department corridor and main reception for all donations. Many thanks in advance for helping us support this worthy cause!

Form Items sought
Woodlands Fruit juice, tinned fruit
Reception Tinned veg, long life milk cartons
Year 1 Chopped tomatoes, tinned/packet soup
Year 2 Instant mash potato, pasta sauce
Year 3 Instant/pot noodles, tinned meat/fish
