Shaftesbury Primary’s ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ Collects For Locals In Need

Pupils of Shaftesbury Primary have been collecting food and cleaning products to donate to struggling locals this Christmas.

We chat with year three teacher Kate Clark, who suggested the ‘reverse advent calendar’ idea.

Open House manager Nikki Hall tells us how the items will be distributed to people in need.
