As the lockdown began to grip so I moved to the Food Bank collecting bin to outside the Vicarage. On the whole passers by have been really generous. Admittedly, there have been days when the bin has had nothing put in it, but equally there have been times when it has been overflowing with donations. For the meanwhile the swing bin remains outside the Vicarage to encourage community donations but we have put a smaller bin back in Church.
I am grateful to Bill who enthusiastically collects all the donations twice a week and transports them to the Food Bank for distribution. Unfortunately, if the predictions of a dire economic recession come true then the impact will be felt by hardest by the very poorest in our Town and Food Bank collections will be needed more than ever.
