Businesses Cut Chocolate For Trussel Trust

Carmel Harrison getting ready to give up chocolate

A WAKEFIELD business woman with a sweet tooth is giving up chocolate in November and is calling on other professionals in the city to do the same.

It isn’t the first year she has collected the calendars for the charity which runs food banks in Normanton and Pontefract but this year she wants to make a real impact in Wakefield.  In previous years the Rotary Club of Leeds, White Rose has collected them as it will again this year.

“More than 13 million people face hunger in the UK every day and the Trussel Trust does magnificent work to ensure many enjoy a nutritious meal.  As a mum I know how much I want to see my own son smiling and appreciate other parents feel the same.  Donating Advent calendars could help put a smile on a young child’s face.”

“So far Unity Works and Wakefield District Council have agreed to collect Advent calendars in October and November to hand out before December 1,” she said.  “What would make a real difference is if other members of Bondholders and Mid Yorkshire Chamber could either donate at Unity Works or Wakefield One or set up their own collections,” she added.

Donations can be left at Unity Works reception from October 12.  If you need Advent calendars collecting contact
