At Seabrook Day Nursery, in Lewsey Road, families have been collecting household food items for those who need them most as part of a reverse advent calendar initiative for NOAH Enterprise, where each day something is given instead of received.

Gemma Bell, Seabrook Day Nursery team leader, said: “Christmas is a magical time of the year but also one of real financial hardship for many.

"We are delighted to be donating to such a worthy cause, and also believe this sets a great example to the children about the importance of helping others.”
