What a great day we had yesterday! Started off with a lovely assembly at St Mary's School, Wavendon who sang me two songs - fantastic!
Then met with Rev. David Lunn from St Mary's Church, Wavendon who gave us a lovely harvest donation. David is also a representative of Broughton Ecclesiastical who generously awarded The Food Bank a cheque for £2000 to support our work - how amazing is that!
In the afternoon I met with Asda's community representative Adele Johnson to discuss how they could support our work. Adele was very interested in what we do and was keen to help. As such, we will be getting a trolley in their store in a prominent position, all signed up to accept Food Bank donations - this will go in next Thursday 29th as a trial run with the aim that it may become a permanent fixture!
This is exactly what we have been hoping to achieve for so long and I am very grateful to Asda for being the first to give it a try!
