Today Gill and I had the honour of delivering 100 advent calendars to a local community food bank . Our amazing crafting community came together to allow us to do this on their and our behalf . We collected donations of money and advent calendars and are amazed at the amount we were able to take along to the foodbank.
The food bank is called FreeShop Crawley and they offer support to 160 customers in our town.
The wonderful thing about this community group is that it offers the customers a shopping experience. They have their shop set up like a farm shop and customers take a basket and go around and pick up items that suit them. They even have a till which helps the customers feel like customers and the shop with stock control.
The shop doesn't just offer food it offers clothing, household essentials as well as a warm welcome and support to those who are in need.
We are so lucky to be able to support this wonderful community with the help of our amazing crafting community ❤️
