Well more Waiting For Sainsburys than Santa but it sounded better 😁.

James and Linda arrived at Frenford Food Bank to find Herman, Angela and some of Frenford’s own volunteers already hard at work. We all got stuck in picking, packing, sorting Christmas gifts for recipients with children, assisting drivers and restocking the shelves with the latest delivery. All done with Christmas cheer music in the background. Angela had to leave and the rest of us enjoyed a well earned break with a soft drink and festive goodies thrown in before heading off when we were told another delivery was due in from Sainsbury’s at any minute. Keen to get ahead of the game for the next days session we hung on to see it off loaded.

We didn’t get round to taking photos until after Angela left, didn’t want her left out so I attached a previous one 😉
