Brownies Collect and Donate for Reverse Advent Calendar

1st Henley Brownies have completed their Christmas good turn by each collecting a different item on the list for a reverse food advent calendar that Henley Manor care home were collecting for residents of Henley YMCA and Nomad Youth & Community Project.

Brownie Leader, Michaela Clarke said, “When I read the article on the Herald, I thought it would be a great idea for the Brownies to do as there are 24 of them and 24 items needed for the advent calendar and we like to do a Christmas good turn for the community.  Each of them decided on which item they would like to donate off the list.”

Henley Manor currently have 24 calendars, so they will be giving at least 12 each to Nomad and YMCA. They are hoping that they will have a few more as the presentation is not until the 20 December and they are still accepting donations at the care home in Mill Lane.

Customer Relationship Manager at Henley Manor, Saad Baig said: “We are incredibly grateful to the 1st Henley Brownies who have supported our reverse advent calendar challenge and donated 24 boxes. This amazing donation will make a huge difference to families in need over Christmas as well as support the vital work YMCA and Nomad do in the local and extended communities.”
