One Can Trust – Marlow Bottom Brownies

July is nearly here and it’s time to start making your Summer Holiday Countdown Calendars for the One Can Trust foodbank.  It’s a fun and easy way to encourage children to collect food for the One Can Trust while getting really excited about the summer holidays.  Everything you need is on the attached pdf. You can bring your Calendars to Burford on the last day of term and volunteers will take them to the foodbank for you.

The Second Marlow Bottom Brownies, who invented the Calendar, would like to thank Mr Garner for all his support; he’s encouraged them to promote the Calendar in assembly, at the school fair and in posters all around the school. The Brownies are really proud that schools all over Marlow and Wycombe are joining in with the project, plus numerous Guiding units all over South Bucks. You may have seen the Countdown Calendar publicised on facebook, Wycombe Sound, Marlow FM and the Bucks Free Press. We’ve also had generous support from the Round Table, the One Stop Shop and Intel UK who have offered to send volunteers to collect Countdown Calendars from local schools.

We are aware that Burford parents have already given generously in the One Can Trust House Competition but please dig deep for the Summer Holiday Countdown Calendar as well. With an estimated 7,500 children in Wycombe living in poverty and the foodbank struggling to send out 400 parcels a month, the situation really is desperate.

Thank you.

Rebecca Lewis, Leader Second Marlow Bottom Brownies
