Following a visit from our School Council, we received this message of thanks:
"St Mary's Primary were one of the first beneficiaries of this project...before we even had a name. They along with a dozen other schools and 40+ other care homes/community groups/homeless projects and others besides shared in the 115,000+ innocent drinks, 30,000+ Ivy restaurant meals and many tonnes of fresh fruit and veg that were channelled via this project the first months of the pandemic.
They were an absolute joy to work with. More importantly, seeing the teaching team fight so hard to put meal packs together for their kids was a great source of energy and inspiration for this project...and a good part of the reason why we are here today.
With all that in mind, it was a real joy (after 3 long days of being open) to have the lovely children from St Mary's school council come up to the hub with a big thank you note (and some treats for the volunteers). We couldn't wish for better neighbours!"
