Good afternoon to you all
A very interesting day to day as some of the team attend the induction training for the Trussell Trust Pathfinder Programme.
We will be holding some information sessions relating to this in the coming months to ensure everyone is aware of what this means and how they can get involved.
The basic premise is that "Foodbanks are not seen as the long terms solution", which i am sure is something that we all endorse.
Look out for the events in the coming months.
We are delighted that Helen, our Foodbank Administrator, is finally home from the hospital, it must have been so hard for her being away from her family and friends for such a long time.
Despite being in hospital she managed to continue to keep us up to date ensuring deliveries were booked in, and our admin was kept up to date, such a wonderful commitment despite Helen being in hospital.
Helen has asked that we pass on her thanks for all your kind messages `
"thank you for the prayers , messages and cards I received from you all, I was truly overwhelmed".
We are so blessed to have so much from the harvest donations we have been truly blessed, and we know there is still more to come. We are really grateful, although we do still have a lot of food to date and sort through.
If your group or organisation is looking to get involved in something, for a one off, then they could come and help us with some dating and sorting of the Harvest donations, it would be of great help.
We are also still looking for people to join our van crew to give us enough cover for holidays etc, so if you know anyone who maybe interested please get them to contact me.
Despite the generous harvest donations hve items that we have lower stocks on, these include:
Orange/ Lemon/ Blackcurrant Squash
Many thanks for your continued support and prayers. It really is appreciated by us all.
