Congregations from both Tarvin Churches regularly collect food bank items which are  taken jointly to the Cheshire Food bank.  In December 2019 we ran a special appeal to support the local Food Bank. We called it a 'Reverse Advent Calendar' and encouraged individuals and families to create an 'Advent Calendar' of FOOD by putting a food item into a box throughout Advent. We collected These boxes and took them to the Food Bank in January. The responsewas amazing from Tarvin, we donated over Half a Tonof food items!

The Methodist Church and the Parish Church are working together and want to do something even better, and deliver items to the Food Bank in time for Christmas itself.

The 12 Days of Christmas
Everyone needs a little help at some stage in their life.so here is a great way to help.

We all enjoy Advent Calendars and receiving a little something every day as we count up to Christmas..so let's do it the other way round..In Reverse!

  • For each of the first 12 days of Advent you put an item of food into a box, one for each day. By the middle of December your box will be full. (see the list below for ideas)
  • We will collect and deliver the full 12 Days of Christmas Boxes to the West Cheshire Food Bank by Friday 16th December in time for Christmas.
  • Empty boxes are available from either of the Tarvin Churches each Sunday or you can collect from  St Andrew's Church, Tarvin every weekday morning or contact Paul Mercer 07904 812252.
  • When your box is full please leave it in St Andrew's Church. The Parish Rooms are open every weekday morning, or contact us to arrange for us to collect it from you.
  • Of course, there is no limit to the number of boxes you can donate!

This Winter could be long and hard for some people and putting food on the table at Christmas may not be easy, or even possible for some people-please help us and join in.

Thank you!
