The Food Bank's first blog entry!

This is quite a momentous day in many ways, firstly it is the first time I have ever "blogged"and it is the first entry ever on The Food Bank's blog!

Secondly, I am pleased to say that the response to The Food Bank Christmas Hamper Project 2009 has been amazing! We had originally aimed to do 50 hampers to help local families at Christmas time - however I am now pleased to say that we will be able to do 87 hampers! This is truly awesome and will really make a massive difference to these families at Christmas time.

Yesterday, Arnie and I went along to the Woburn Sands Carnival, where, the Woburn Sands & Villages Churches Together team had a stand supporting the work of The Food Bank. Whilst the weather was grim, the response from the people was great and we were able to speak to many people about our work. We also collected just under £34 cash and took in some food donations which was a real bonus. Many thanks to Rev Chris Batten and the rest of the team for organising this.

I do plan to update this blog in a regular basis so please do follow the exciting exploits of The Food Bank!

Together we really can make a difference.....
