    The Modern-Day Advent Gift That Will Keep Giving Throughout December and Beyonduploaded picture

    Get ready to experience a magical journey through the festive season like no other. Twenty-four authors have come together to create a special collection of diverse and inclusive stories in one special book to celebrate the joy of the holidays for every day of advent.

     The Enchanted Christmas Treasury (aimed at readers aged five to eight) features stories of ninja nans, brave pups and fallen angels finding their way back to the top of the Christmas tree, in tales that will charm everyone.

     Children will be delighted by the whimsical characters, enchanted settings, and heartwarming messages contained in each of the pages.

     The best part? The magic will transport children and parents alike to a world of enchantment and wonder, as they read together and create special memories lasting a lifetime.

     All the proceeds raised from sales of The Enchanted Christmas Treasury will help fund the work of SENStory, a UK-wide not-for-profit Community Interest Company, helping children, young people, and families with Special Educational Needs navigate their journeys in nature through therapy, play, learning and training opportunities.

     The Enchanted Christmas Treasury collaborative book project has been curated by Abigail Horne, the Founder of Authors & Co. Abigail’s story about a fallen angel is also featured. She says, “The Enchanted Christmas Treasury celebrates the spirit of inclusivity, diversity, and kindness - themes that are especially important during the holiday season. Bringing together these twenty-four authors from all over the world, to create and write such beautiful stories has been so special – as I know what a lasting impact this project can and will have.”

    2023 Alcohol Free 'Sweet & Tasty' Advent Calendar uploaded picture does that work?

    Every day of advent across Wise Bartender social media pages producers will take over Wise Bartenders social media account with photos, videos and tasting sessions. So you get to join in with hundreds of other AF fans and all taste the same drink the same day and learn about it each day from the brands themselves! You can post reels, arty shots or just get involved with live sessions and interviews. 

    Sweet and Tasty Calendar

    The second alcohol free calendar is a little sweeter and contains 24 different drinks on the sweeter side of life. It contains a range of ciders, cocktails, and wine all no higher than 0.5% ABV. So open a new door in the run up to Christmas and try some of Wise Bartenders favourite brands. 

    Both calendars also include a December discount voucher, so you can stock up on your favourite drinks!

    Alcohol Free Beers are made just like the alcoholic ones with water, yeast, hops and barley. Some are brewed to a lower ABV and some have the alcohol removed through various techniques. Across Europe beers below 0.5% ABV are classed as alcohol free. In the UK drinks that are between 0.05% and 0.5% ABV are classed as non-alcoholic.  

    We really like this, the selection of drinks we tried from the calender tasted delicious and its a great way to relax after work each day in December with a sweet perfectly safe tipple!
