Reverse Advent Calendar

We're trying something new! Hillcrest would like to support the local Foodbank by launching a Reverse Advent Calendar starting Monday 19th November! 

The idea of the Reverse Advent Calendar is that you donate a different item each day, over the next 4 weeks in the run up to Christmas, for a worthy cause. By the 14th December we hope to have a moutain of goods that can be donated to Local Foodbank to support hard pressed families, at this particularly difficult time of the year.  Donations can be dropped off with your child's class teacher or made via the front office. Please feel free to dip in and out and give as much or as little as you feel able to. Many Thanks in advance for you donations and support.
