We had a new member turn up and help out and a returnee along with a someone who hasn't gone to these community missions for a long time. To all, glad you could make it. The good news is we had less than 40 food packages to do, and a lot of people which meant we did most of this within 2 hours. The rest of the time, we spent restocking and unfortunately finding products that have gone out of date, which annoyingly was a lot (100 bags of self raising flour, 125 tins of tomato soup, and some vegetable soup). We found a lot of custard creams went over their best before, which next session people are going to get a lot of biscuits (a future merry Christmas to them).
