Allstone Charity Advent Calendar reaches £5,000 milestone

The Allstone-Speedy Skips Charity Advent Calendar has got off to a flying start with £5,000 donated to deserving Gloucestershire charities already this month.

The business pledged to donate money to 24 charities in the run-up to Christmas with daily social media reveals on the company's festive calendar.

Physical therapy charity Footsteps Foundation was the first organisation to receive a £500 donation on December 1.

Charity Building Circles was behind door number two, with Winston's Wish, The Nelson Trust, Gloucester and Cheltenham Stroke Cafe, Little Princess Trust, Battledown Children Centre, James Hopkins Trust, Catch A Smile and Community Action Ledbury among those receiving donations on subsequent days.

Managing director Simon Ford said: "It's been really well received. We've given every customer and charity an Advent calendar and they've all said it is better to do this this year than any other."
