Daily Advent Challenge

Take up the Daily Challenges and make a difference for somebody.

Be advised:

  1. Keep yourself and others healthy. So, socially distance, wear a mask (if required) and wash your hands. If you are feeling unwell – STAY AT HOME.

  2. Only attempt the Challenge if you feel safe to do so.

  3. If children get involved in the Challenge, please use more than common sense and don’t put them in harm’s way!

  4. Remember, you are not required to do the actual Challenge. You can change it for something you feel more comfortable with.

  5. If you think of a better Challenge, let us know and we can include it in Advent Challenge 2021.
