Valley Wives July & August Reports

From Joan Steel. Margaret chaired the July meeting and introduced Sarah Mordount, our speaker on the “One Can Trust” a project that started in May 20011 at Saint Andrews Church in Hatters Lane,with the aim of facilitating charities by setting up food banks for people in need in the High Wycombe area. A food bag is provided containing non perishable items as a short term emergency food supply in a crisis, for a family or individual. Each bag contains a menu card and a variety of nutritious food that forms a complete meal .This is all done through the generosity of donors who give eg. dried foods eg pasta, rice or, canned foods eg meats fish, soups ,stews milk puddings fruit,also coffee ,tea etc. “Changing Lives for the Better ” is the Logo. Support is given by indiviuals,churches,schools brownies, scouts,etc and every person attending one of Sarah’s talks is asked to bring a can of food. Donations can be made directly to the food bank at the Big Yellow Storage in London road where a store cupboard is provided free by the company. Sarah was thanked warmly for coming to talk to us about this charity that is so easy to contribute to, and needs much support in these times of austerity.

In August we enjoyed a Pot Luck Supper and a time to chat!

On September 7th Janet Duneen is our speaker on “Bucks County Crafts”. All welcome..
