As so often happens with these things we have our second food drive only two weeks after our very first one. This one will be on Saturday 17th August and will at the Tesco Extra in Gorton (Hyde Road, M18 8LD). Everyone who helped out at the Asda food drive, including myself, learnt a lot about what works and what doesn't while asking members of the public to donate food.
One of the major things that I noticed was that many people did not need encouragement and were far more generous than I expected. For me, this shows that there are far more charitable people out there than many have led me to believe. Today, where there are so many competing charities for many worthy causes, I am very happy our local community based effort seems to draw so much attention and generosity.
For our next food drive we will of course need another team of enthusiastic volunteers. I know many will return but some are unable to make this next date. If anyone wishes to contribute, you only need to give one or two hours on the 17th to help out. If you are interested please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
