A new advent resource has been launched to help hospices during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Hospice Advent Calendar aims to raise thousands of pounds through profits from sales.
David Marshall, CEO of The Meaningful Chocolate Company, makers of the calendar, said: ‘Hospice fund-raising has been hit particularly badly by the pandemic, yet the hospices continue their work with the most vulnerable members of our society and their families – providing care, comfort and support. That’s why we have developed the Fairtrade Hospice Advent Calendar.
‘Buy one and you will be supporting hospices. Also, because of the 25 Fairtrade milk chocolates in each calendar, you will be supporting farmers across the globe.’
For each calendar bought at full price from The Meaningful Chocolate online shop, £1 will be donated to six participating hospices. The £1 donation will be split as follows: 50p will be shared across all the participating hospices and purchasers can choose where the remaining 50p donation goes – by selecting one from the list of six before adding the calendar to the shopping cart.
‘Or you can simply add calendars to your cart and whole £1 donation will be spread across all six hospices,’ explained David.
The calendars are only available to buy from The Meaningful Chocolate online shop.
