[UPDATE] On the twelfth day of Christmas BPCA gave to me...

All of the donated food items for the BPCA "reverse advent calendar" are now in and will be donated to a local food bank at the end of the week. With food bank usage in the UK on the increase, the staff team wanted to support people who might not be able to provide meals for their families throughout the festive season.

The final totals: 240 tea bags, 81 cans of vegetables, 2kg of pasta, 1kg of rice, 16 bags of biscuits, 13 cans of meat, 12 servings of soup, 400g of coffee, 10 cans of beans, 9 cans of fruit, 8 litres of juice, 7 lots of chocolate, 6 litres of milk, 5 rice puddings, 4 cans of fish, 2 cans of custard, and a jar of festive preserves.
