Schools Advent

The 2023 Real Advent Calendar is a great way for schools to start preparing for Christmas. Below you will find details about the calendar, access to free assembly resources for schools and a £300 prize competition.

Calendar Features

The Real Advent Calendar is the UK’s only Fairtrade Advent calendar which comes with a free Christmas Story-Advent activity book which has a page for every day in Advent. There is a line of the Christmas story behind every window. It’s a great way for classes to count down to Christmas or they make for great competition prizes. The chocolate itself is a creamy Fairtrade blend and the whole calendar is foiled to ensure that the chocolate remains fresh. 

Children's £300 voucher competition

Inside The Real Advent Calendar story-activity book is a children's competition with £300 worth of book tokens to be won. All details can be found in the story-activity book which comes with the calendar.

Tastes good and does good

The Real Advent Calendar not only shares the Christmas story it is also Fairtrade and charitable. To date, we have donated more than £360,000 from our sales to support charitable projects. By using Fairtrade chocolate, producers get a fair price as well as a 'top-up' cash bonus.

Money raised from this year’s calendar will help The Funzi and Bodo Trust provide mums and babies from poor African villages with care: clinics for pregnant mums, birthing rooms, baby growth and malnutrition clinics. You can read about the work of the Funzi and Bodo trust here
