Another of our monthly visits to help out with the fabulous Liverpool Zero Waste Community. A repeat visit for Heetu and myself, but the first time for Ruth and Jennifer

This time the team there had been hosting a children's party in the early evening to celebrate the contribution of all the young people and kids that help out in the wider LZW community, often tagging along with family members helping to carry and sorts bags of donated food. They were finishing off cleaning up so we got started on setting up all the tables and chairs for the evenings donations.

As usual we mucked in, finding out what small changes had been made to the process since we last visited, and helping to get everything fairly distributed into each of the bags ready to be collected by people at the end of the night.

This time we saw huge amounts of punnets of Raspberry's and strawberry's and came home smelling of all these beautiful fruits and with a couple of bunches of saved flowers each too!

We'll be back again in a month so come and join us!
