Preserves, Pickles & Produce for Polly
This month's Charity Coffee Morning in aid of the Homeless in Banbury was a huge success. Polly came to meet her supporters.
Thank you to everyone who turned up, or gave cakes and produce for sale.
We made the grand total of £543 to give to Polly. Polly was immensely grateful and amazed that so many people want to support her work.
As you may know, Polly devotes a good part of every day to helping a small group of homeless and vulnerable men and women in Banbury. Every day she shops and / or cooks for group of homeless people who meet her outside St Mary's Church in Banbury every evening. Polly makes sure every one of them gets some hot food which she transports in foil trays (all packed into her giant shopping trolley, which she takes on the bus, as she doesn't drive!). She also gives them a bag with provisions for the next morning.
The charity coffee mornings are a great way to meet people if you're new to the village, and an opportunity to catch up with people you may not have seen for a while.
