Afterwards, over coffee and cake, we sang 'Happy birthday' to Dirk. (And what better place could there be to celebrate it?!)
Thank you to those who helped out in any way today; to Margaret for arranging Dirk's visit, and of course to Dirk himself; and to those who offered Harvest gifts. All but the perishables will go to Leamington & Warwick Foodbank, as will today's cash collection. Since the foodbank started at the beginning of July, it has supported approximately 300 adults and 100 children who otherwise would have struggled, and it's good to know that we can help this important work in some small way.
