First of all a huge welcome to Fatima who is new to Redbridge and was previously a part of Tower Hamlets group. šŸ˜

Linda arrived at Frenford Food Bank to find James showing Fatima the ropes and 2nd timer Ben already packing like a pro. Our Jenny was next to arrive and got stuck in straight away. It was a busy session as a lot of the Food Banks regular teenage helpers were not available this week šŸ™

Some of us were sad as one of our regular Park Run Marshalls had passed away recently, one of the Frenford helpers was grumpy with the young Frenford gym members getting under his feet and another was very down having just had a bad experience in a recent exam. Fortunately the busyness of the task, the banter between us and offers of hugs and support pulled us all through. Even when two packages mysteriously disappeared, everyone rallied round to correct the situation. Turns out the packages had gone for a ride with one of the drivers, who is a lovely lady over 80 years old so she was very much forgiven.

Once again the blending of different volunteer teams and hard work won through. Well done to all involved šŸ‘šŸ»šŸ‘šŸ»
