Heat wave 😎

Well what a scorcher - I hope you all managed to stay cool. Hopefully, August will be a tad cooler.

More than one tin

You may be aware that The Barnabas centre (in Longden Coleham) is looking for more donations for its food bank. An initiative called more than one tin has been launched inviting communities to help.
Here's the message from The Barnabas Centre:

"A new food bank campaign for your school, business, church, street or group to get involved in. Our supplies are running extremely low, and we need your help!
This is a way for your group to support the community around you with just one tin each. One tin, together a greater impact!
"We'd love schools, businesses, churches, streets and groups (for example WI, social groups etc) to sign up to a 'more than one tin' week where you can each donate an item to our food bank, and together support your local community!
"To sign up, please email The Barnabas Centre and let us know when you will be running your 'more than one tin' week; or you may choose to do this more regularly and organise a weekly or monthly collection. Let us know if you'd like us to promote this on our social media.
We need all items except for beans, tuna and pasta"

Residents in Amber Rise have decided to participate. A donation basket will be placed outside no 1 and no 3 Amber Rise on the first of each month to the end of the year.
Items needed regularly can be found on The Barnabas website
