Preston Here For Humanity need your help

Preston Here for Humanity are hosting a reverse advent calendar to help those less fortunate over the festive period.


Rather than take a chocolate from an advent calendar though, you add an item to a box ready for the community interest company to collect on Christmas Eve.
