We hear The Real Advent Calendar is outselling the versions from Maltesers, Cadburys and Lyndt.

Traidcraft have had four big deliveries and our independent shops are asking for them as churches and individuals across the UK join the campaign to share the Christmas Story this Advent.

For those of you who want to buy bulk stock from us we are selling them on our own online shop. We only have 400 cases so when they have gone, they have gone.

There are 20 calendars per box-we can’t split them- but delivery is free. The shop is also the only place that you can buy bulk supplies of our Meaningful Tree Decs. The shop is here.
