A REVERSE charity Advent calendar has been launched in the district to gather much-needed donations.
LWS Night Shelter is looking for individuals, businesses, schools and groups to take part in their annual Reverse Advent Calendar Appeal.
The charity supports homeless and vulnerably-housed local people by providing hot meals and food parcels, and are aiming to reopen for overnight stays in the near future.
Every day from December 1 to 24, they will be posting an item they need on their social media. The item can then be added to a box and donated at the end of the month. It is just like an Advent Calendar, but instead of getting something every day, people donate something instead.
Participants can also receive the full list in advance by emailing [email protected]
