31 March - Relief is on its way

Food parcelsReports are coming in that Food Aid is hitting doorsteps across the borough. The logistics must be a nightmare but it is happening. Quite an achievement in such a short time.

The food delivery for a couple of vulnerable people is typically a loaf of white bread, a pack of digestive biscuits, a handful of tea bags, a few coffee sachets and some soya milk.
