Damu, Michael and I gathered in Benwell just as the clouds gathered and delivered an unexpected shower. Our delivery, on the other hand, was of 200 leaflets for Food Cycle. I was a minute late (traffic just seems to get worse and worse!) and given the rain I didn't leave Michael and Damu to stand - let's deliver!

Regular readers of our reports will know that our friends at Food Cycle deliver a free meal once a week in five sites across Newcastle and Gateshead. We're always happy to help them spread the word.

Leaflet deliveries in Benwell are always quick due to upstairs and downstairs flats with adjacent front doors and short paths. It was a close run race between the rain delivery and the leaflet delivery. I think the shower finished first but we also finished the leaflet delivery in time for me to hear the draw for the next round of the FA Cup! To be honest, I wish I hadn't bothered! I hope that Leeds fan Damu is happier at the end of the night!
