We didn’t have a party for our 10th birthday. Instead we decided to donate funds to the Yate and Chipping Sodbury Foodbank. We popped in to deliver the cheque in person and were very impressed with the amazing work the team of volunteers do to support our neighbours in times of real need and hardship.
We hadn’t fully appreciated that not only do the volunteers hep with organising the food parcels, they also offer people a warm drink and a biscuit. Foodbank volunteers take the time to listen and support. They are specially trained to know about local services and offer practical guidance so that people have access to the right support, helping them to break out of crisis.
We were very pleased to have been able to give them some support and felt very humbled by the valuable and hard work they do.
We are really enjoying working with Hobbs House Bakeries. Aside from the great team, it is always an upside to work somewhere with cakes as good as theirs. We recommend you try them if you are around Bristol, Chipping Sodbury, Nailsworth, Tetbury or Malmesbury.
We are looking forward to facilitating the Annual Business Breakfast on the 6th December. Remember to book your tickets!
