Staff at Coastline Housing in Redruth have been collecting dozens of advent calendars to donate to a local food bank.

Colleagues are once again supporting the CPR Food Bank in the run up to the festive season to help make sure local children don’t miss out on the excitement of counting down to the big day.

Liz Bracelin, who organised the collection at Coastline, said: “This has become an annual event at Coastline, where we ask people to buy an extra calendar or two during their weekly shop and bring them in to be donated to the foodbank. I am always really amazed by the response. Thank you to all who have supported this collection to bring a little extra festive cheer to local children at this time of year.”
