And over the last 2 weeks have run Little Eye Live classes on Zoom for up to 15 people, starting their own sourdough and making a loaf. Some very good loaves produced, along with a few more varied - but all tasting good!
On behalf of Wirral Foodbank, I would like to thank you for your recent very kind donation of £130 to us. Thank you also for Gift Aiding the donation, enabling us to reclaim the tax paid on the money.
We are still extremely busy at the moment, as people of Wirral are surpassing themselves by donating food in supermarkets as they shop, and also by sending us cheques and making online donations. Our main worry was that we may start having less food available to us as I believe that the coronavirus has meant some foods will be in short supply. However we seem to be able to access most items at the moment. We are concerned about the fact that many churches have closed for the time being and they are one of our main donating groups. However, many church members, other individuals and local agencies have been finding alternative ways to donate to us, which has enabled us to carry on supporting local families as much as possible.
Our new group of volunteers has made a big difference to our volunteer force, with us having taken on over 100 new volunteers over the past 12 months. Many of these have been helping at the Wirral Food Hub, of which we are a part. We are sending them several tons of food each week that they then distribute to people in isolation. We hope our fantastic volunteers continue to come along each week, despite their own concerns about becoming ill.
We just want to thank you particularly for your very generous support to us. It is very much appreciated.
