It was a wet start to Foodbank today, but plenty of people to help out. Finnuala, Harry, Mel, Ridley and Rob were out back re-stocking, making up crates and fulfilling toiletry requirements. Lucy and Pat were on the front desk making sure everyone got what they needed. We had a swaps table, some school uniform and lots of other clothing that was free to whoever wanted it. Lucy had made a delicious ginger cake and Pat and Rob had brought chocolate covered raisins and other goodies to celebrate the fact that it was Rob's (Lucy's Dad) Birthday today! Harry brought doughnuts and jam tarts, so we had plenty to satisfy any sweet cravings. Along with the refreshments and food items available to our visitors, foodbank had been given hundreds of packs of some very hot chilli crispy snacks which went down a treat and quite a few of the packs were happily taken away. It was a busy foodbank today and a lovely atmosphere with lots of chats, and enjoyment of the refreshments available.
