Coffee Morning for Taunton Foodbank

This morning we hosted a coffee morning in Buckland St Mary parish church in aid of Taunton Foodbank.  We asked people to bring food donations instead of money and several people did, although some forgot and donated money instead, which is always useful as it allows us to buy anything we are out of stock of, or to buy nappies for families with babies who are in need.

Our friends helped out by running the raffle.DSC00392We had quite a few raffle prizes including a food hamper from our friend’s garden.

People do love to get together and have a chat over a coffee.

We raised £96.20 with monetary contributions and the raffle, and received 4 crates of food in donations, so a good result all round. A big thank you to all who attended.
