Aidan, Ceiling, Ivy, Jacqui and myself came together this lunchtime to help Bow Foodbank completely reorganise their newly assembled space and to prepare for the 600 plus recipients of food starting on Monday next week. Due to the unprecedented demand due to a various circumstances (mostly due to COVID-19), they have had to move to a bigger space, expanding their capacity and operations to prepare for the winter. Kate, our inspirational and passionate task owner met us and the gate, explained the requirements of the task and every member of our team mucked in to make incredible progress over the hour and a half slot.

Today's shout out goes to Jacqui, who travelled over an hour to get to the task and was on hand to make sure we got some great photos for the report - hope to see you again soon Jacqui!

An incredible task to be involved with, and we will potentially see some Monday lunchtime work incoming over the next few months with this so watch this space.
