Crown Oil’s Christmas Charity Advent Calendar

At Crown Oil we feel really strongly about supporting those in need. In the last 12 months we’ve donated over £22,500 to local charities and causes. A big part of this is our charity calendar, Crown Advent. With the cost-of-living crisis and the struggles of winter for many, we’ve dug deep this December to help local charities and causes in any way we can.

Day 1

We’ve donated 100 selection boxes to our Lady & St Paul’s Primary School for the Children’s Christmas Fair.

Day 2

We held our very own Elf Day to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society. We served pea and ham soup as well as everyone’s favourite school dessert, chocolate sponge and mint custard for just a small donation of £2.

Day 3

We’ve given cases of beer and prosecco to Rochdale Olympic Gymnastic Club’s Christmas Raffle.

Day 4

We’ve donated £300 to Astley Community Hub’s Food Bank to help fund a storage container to store all the food. With no help in the local area, they’ve set up the scheme via Facebook for local pensioners and low income families.

Day 5

Crystal Chords are holding a concert with wine and chocolates to raise money for their local Topping Fold Foodbank and essential church repairs. We’ve donated £150 to help kickstart the event!

Day 6

We’ve been rounding up unused toys, clothes and other items which we dropped off at the RSPCA and Hollingworth Lake Wildlife Charity Shop in Littleborough.

Day 7

We’ve given non-perishable food items to the Lighthouse Pantry, a membership food club to help local families who are struggling to save money.

Day 8

We’ve donated £250 to Manchester Dog Shelter to go towards much-needed dog supplies on their Amazon Wishlist.

Day 9

We’ve donated £250, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits to Rammy Men which was set up after several local men sadly took their own lives. Today, over 700 men and women get involved in their activities, helping to strengthen the community.

Day 10

We’ve donated £250, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits to Warm Welcome Spaces which has over 3000 registered organisations that have opened or are opening up free, warm, welcoming spaces for the public over this winter across the UK.

Day 11

We’ve donated £100 towards Hoyle’s Nursery Christmas Fair to help buy items on their Christmas Raffle.

Day 12

We’ve given 100 selection boxes and £900 to Restoring Hope. This will help fund 100 Christmas dinners that they are providing for vulnerable people as well as a Pantomime Trip for 100 adults/children from underprivileged backgrounds.

Day 13

To help with the cost-of-living crisis, we’ve donated £250, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits to Bury Involvement Group in Mental Health, a local charity for people aged 18 and over, who are experiencing mental health conditions.

Day 14

We’ve been down to the Two Tubs Pub in Bury to hand over a donation of £500 to help fund their new £1 One Pot Dinners Scheme. A brilliant initiative to help with the cost-of-living crisis!

Day 15

We’ve donated £300 to help fund the Santaceptor C.I.C, a non-profit charitable incorporated company in Bury. Transformed into the world’s only bespoke Police Interceptor, it has exclusive use of PC Clause who delivers selection boxes to around 1,500 local, underprivileged children.

Day 16

We’ve been collecting unused and old books as part of the Crown Oil Book Drive to give to local schools who then distribute the on to underprivileged children.

Day 17

We’ve donated supplies of tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits to Andy’s Man Club in Bury, a fantastic free-to-attend peer-to-peer support group for men aged over 18.

Day 18

We’ve given £250 to the Attic Project, a charitable foundation located in the heart of Bury, dedicated to helping those in need. With the help of volunteers, staff members and partners, they strive to improve the lives of everyone who needs help within the community. 

Day 19

We’ve bought toys and games for Foster with Bury’s Christmas Party which includes a disco, games and buffet for the children and hopes to make this time of year as enjoyable as possible in extremely difficult circumstances.

Day 20

We’ve donated £500 to Little Monkeys in Heywood Children’s Charity whose aim is to combat growing problems of poverty, malnutrition and illness and give children a chance in life, regardless of their backgrounds.

Nobody should go cold or without a bed this winter. That’s why we’ve donated hats, gloves and items to Petrus who provides residential and day support to people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Rochdale.

Porch boxes provides crisis packs for those in need. We’ve done a food shop to give families items that they would love to have and otherwise go without at Christmas.

We’re thrilled to have paid for Age UK Bury’s Christmas Hampers. Through their Befriending Scheme, they are giving out packages of food items such as Christmas cake and biscuits to those who would otherwise go without at Christmas.
