More than 40 businesses are taking part in an advent calendar organised by a popular Facebook community in aid of charity.

Worcestershire Foodies Guide started the calendar three years ago to raise money for the Worcestershire Homeless Appeal.

Since then, the festive event has grown - with more than £200 raised in three days.

The Worcestershire Foodies Guide was set up in 2019 to help promote businesses - and has now has more than 12,000 members.

Aimée Sealey, who is behind the group, said: "We started our advent calendar early this year as we have more than 40 Worcestershire businesses involved.

"Sometimes life throws curve balls at you and times are hard so it’s great to be able to give something back to people who need it the most.

"We couldn’t be more thankful to both the businesses who have donated all the fabulous prizes but everyone who is playing along. Whether you only play once for a £1 or someone put £20 for just one game - we couldn’t be more grateful.

"To say I am overwhelmed by the generosity of people who are probably feeling the pinch this year but still doing their best to help others is an understatement.

"I am so grateful for everyone who’s involved & for the 12.7k members who share their love for food just like me. This started off as a little hobby but now it keeps me so busy"

Head over to our foodie group at 8am every morning from now until Christmas Eve to see you could be a winner.
