Dallaglio RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which we aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.

Dallaglio Rugbyworks is delighted to announce that they have joined Advent of Change for a second-year running, for the unique charity advent calendar for Christmas.

Last year the celebrity-endorsed social enterprise Advent of Change launched the first-of-its-kind charity advent calendar, which supported 24 charities, including Dallaglio Rugbyworks. By the end of 2018, the movement had raised £100,000 for the charities, and even received an award from the Prime Minister in recognition of outstanding contribution to charitable causes.

This year the calendar is returning, alongside four brand new products. Dallaglio Rugbyworks are proud to be a part of the Advent of Change movement again for 2019, featuring in their Premium Advent Calendar for 2019.

Each day of this alternative advent calendar represents a £1 donation and describes how that gift could be used, giving the recipient a ‘feel-good feeling’ when seeing exactly how they’ve helped – from clearing plastic from UK shores, to offering shelter to a homeless person, and even helping to provide life-changing medicine for a sick child.

Part of Advent of Change’s range of charitable products is a pioneering new Braille version of the Premium Advent Calendar – created in collaboration with the RNIB, who have not only helped to develop the product, but also supplied the Braille itself.

The UK’s first and only Braille advent calendar will span across 24 embossed pages, each featuring raised perforations that detail exactly what the recipient has given.

Advent of Change Founder, Kristina Salceanu said:

“Advent of Change is, and always will be, a not-for-profit enterprise designed to encourage people to give a little something back, so it’s important to us that we are always as inclusive as possible. We developed the Braille edition, so that nobody need be excluded from discovering where their donation has gone each day, and knowing the difference they have made."

The Premium Advert Calendar is available to buy online via the Advent of Change website and John Lewis & Partners, plus John Lewis and Waitrose stores across the country. The calendar costs £29.95, with over 80% of the sale price of this product going directly to charity – £1 going to each charity per calendar.
