The Primrose Fund
We are very pleased to announce that the main sponsor for the 2021 Living Advent Calendar is The Primrose Fund.
The Primrose Trust was established in 2017 by Kelvin and Pippa Medley-Jones in memory of Kelvin’s late mum, Mrs Primrose (Prim) George.
Based in Christchurch, The Trust priority is to support small local charities that benefit children and adults in most need – through disability, age, serious physical or mental illness, or financial deprivation.
We are delighted that a number of local businesses have agreed to sponsor an individual evening by kindly donating £500 to the charity involved that day.
This will raise a minimum of £12,000 for local charities during the month of December 2021, plus any additional monies raised on the night.
Local businesses who have sponsored the Advent Calendar by kindly donating their time:
