A Giant Advent Calendar is being used to countdown to Christmas in Manchester.

Each window will feature a unique piece of artwork created by local designers and illustrators.

The artwork will then be sold as posters, with all profits going to Wood Street Mission. A charity helping children and families dealing with the effects of poverty.

Watch here to see the Calendar in the making.
