In comparison to last nights solo session at Frenford Food Bank the place was buzzing with volunteers today.

A huge welcome to Tina and Herman on their first mission. They arrived together bright an early which gave Linda a chance to show them the ropes before the hustle and bustle got under way. They picked it up quickly and were very soon part of the team.

Ben remembered to sign up in time this time 😊 and is now a confirmed regular who quietly gets on with the job, Katherine brought her usual energy to the team and AJ her skills organising and tidying of the shelves trick - she calls it OCD but whatever you call it it's very useful in the Food Bank.

Along with the other Frenford volunteers we got 38 packages together well in time for the drivers arrival.

Some had places to go so left soon after and the others hung on to assist the drivers which was most appreciated.
