Advent calenders set to be big charity fundraiser

Traditional Christmas advent calendars could become top charity fundraisers in Windsor and Eton this year.

Every calendar will cost £5 and have 24 windows, with a prize on offer behind each window to holders of the calendar with the lucky number.

These will range from trees and decorations to a holiday in a private villa.

Local charities and community organisations will sell these calendars to their own members and contacts and keep a substantial proportion of the profits from each one sold.

Project organiser is Ron Lewandowski from Windsor and Eton Rotary Club. Fellow Rotarian David Shaw explained that the idea originated with Windsor and Eton's twin Rotary club in Celle, Germany - which raised €30,000 through its calendars last year.

David said: "They are letting us use their printing press to print ours."
