Here's what Mr D of S2 had to say about the mission:

Thanks! I have called to see Mr D today he is extremely grateful he cannot call him self. But wanted to pass his best wishes on the team that helped him .. (referrer feedback)

Mr D of S2, mission beneficiary

We were supplied with a fantastic mower the referrer supplied so got to work in the rain to cut the front and back garden long grass. We trimmed the edges and made a habitat pile and compost heap. We cut the hedge as best we could. We litter picked and made it look neat. Rachel and Celine had come from a soggy park run. It was great to have three of us for the work. We were thanked for our efforts and then went to shelter from the rain at Norfolk Park Cafe for their breakfasts and cake. We dried out and decided what to do with the rest of our weekend.
