Reverse Advent Calendar Collection – Holywell Town Council

Holywell Town Council are collecting donations for local foodbanks via the Reverse Advent Calendar Scheme, which is the idea of donating 1 item per day instead of receiving. If anyone can spare any goods at all, no matter how small, please drop at the Council Offices in Tesco car park by noon Monday 17th December. Please call the offices first on 01352 711757 to ensure staff are not in meetings or out of the office. Thank you in advance for your generosity at this time of year.
