A Reverse Advent Calendar

This year ACM took part in a Reverse Advent Calendar in aid of the Gatehouse project, based in Bury St Edmunds.

Staff gave up Christmas traditions such as Secret Santa and Christmas cards, and instead they donated items including essentials such as pasta, rice and soup, toiletries, and also special Christmas treats.   In addition to operating a Foodbank throughout the year, the Gatehouse Christmas project provides hampers to those in need, and also a Christmas lunch in Bury St Edmunds.

Pictured below are Sue Stoten, Jo Forrest, Vic Leever, Eunice Joel, Amanda Bailey, Caroline Houston, Sue Taylor, and Naomi James, with the boxes of donations.
