The Real Advent Calendar is the UK’s only Fairtrade Advent calendar which comes with a free 24 page Christmas story-activity book and supports charitable causes. 

The 2019 Real Advent Calendar is a fun way for parents, grandparents and Godparents to share the Christmas story. The 2019 calendar has a new design. There is a Fairtrade Chocolate and a line of the Christmas story behind each of the 25 windows. The free book has a page for every day of Advent, expanding on the Christmas story and includes some fun challenges.

In addition, the support of a children’s hospital from sales, a National Schools and Youth Group competition and the free online all-age worship material make The Real Advent Calendar a great resource.

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.
