These interruptions are extremely disturbing to those counting the money so can we please ask that no one enters the room until the counting of the money is completed.

The most recent financial donation received amounted to £3,699.31 and came from the Co-op’s Community Cash Back Award. Our grateful thanks go to the Co-op and all its customers. You are continuing to help feed both adults and children in need throughout our local community.
