Wantage & Grove Food Bank

We have been asked to pass on huge thanks for the ongoing donations from our church and also for the harvest donations.

The current situation is that, up to the end of August, 159 food parcels have been delivered this year.

That compares with 177 for the whole of last year. 2013 was the worst year so far for folk in that 263 parcels were delivered.

Sadly, it looks as though this year might well be heading for a similarly large number. So, thank you for the continuing support.

The frequency of visits to a number of NHS buildings and the ubiquitous application of germ-killing gel and hand wash, resulted in an awful taste in my mouth if I dared to bite away at the end of my fingers.We all have our habits from said biting of nails to...
