To get involved, sign your organisation up to easyfundraising and you can be a part of 25 days of advent fun and create an easy and accessible fundraising option your volunteers and the local community can get behind.

Last year’s winner (Wiltshire WI) said: “This money has been a blessing for us. Like most organisations, we have suffered due to the pandemic, and the prize has enabled us to continue to bring women together, to gain new skills, and to campaign on issues close to our hearts.”

We’re joining the 12 Days of Christmas Shopping Window Trail!

Happy Advent month everyone as the countdown to Christmas has officially begun!

This year, Halifax North and East blog (and the Calderdale Lower Valley blog) will be doing the 12 days of Christmas Shopping Window trail and we hope you join us! It will be fun and actually… we haven’t found them all, so we need your help!

For the third year in a row, several shop windows in the town centre have had a little festive makeover, thanks to the very talented Jenny Tribillon.

This Shopping Window Trail features 12 Christmas full window paintings of colourful wintery themes and Christmas celebrations.

The blog will embark in this festive treasure hunt, starting December 1st with one picture going live every other day leading to December 24th.

Join us and see if you can spot them all!
