And what’s more, with every sale of the advent box, £2 will be donated to Lifeshare, the Manchester Charity who have been supporting vulnerable people across Greater Manchester for 35 years.

Lifeshare said they were ‘touched by the support’.

They said: “Lifeshare is the oldest homelessness charity in Manchester and the support of Mancunion businesses has helped us to deliver support for those in crisis for close to 40 years.

“To see local breweries coming together with Hometown Beer to produce this calendar and give something back to the people in their community who need a helping hand is really touching.

“As the weather turns we will have more people needing our support, so all funds raised will help us provide freshly cooked food, hot showers, and dry clothes which will really make a difference in people’s lives!”
