Could you design the front of an Advent Calendar?

Well, the Meaningful Chocolate Company has launched a competition to find the best Advent Calendar design and the profits will help to transform the lives of children in Kenya.

The competition is open to primary schools, secondary schools, and Sunday schools/ Messy Churches/ youth groups such as Guides or Boys’ Brigade.

The challenge is for young people to design the front of an Advent Calendar with the theme of ‘The Star Over Bethlehem’.

There are three first prizes of £150 in each category and three runners-up prizes of £50. Cheques for £150 and £50 will be made to the nominated group and all winners and runners-up will receive a box of our Fairtrade Christmas crackers and tree decorations.

Money raised from this year's Real Advent Calendar will help The Funzi and Bodo Trust, which provides mums and babies from poor African villages with care, clinics for pregnant mums, birthing rooms, baby growth and malnutrition clinics.

David Marshall, from the Meaningful Chocolate Company, said;

"The new design 2019 Real Advent Calendar is unique. The calendar comes with a 24 page Christmas story-activity book with a page for every day of Advent and some fun Advent challenges. Behind each of the 25 windows is part of the Christmas story and a festive shaped Fairtrade milk chocolate.

"It's a great way for parents, grandparents and Godparents to share the Christmas story. No other calendar enables parents and children to experience the Christmas story for 24 days, and be challenged to do some good in the season."

The RRP is £3.99. The calendar can be ordered from
