.Lord’s Larder Update for June 2018

 Thank you everyone who has donated food items to the Lord’s Larder Food Bank last month, items such as boxes of cuppa soup, tins of spam, biscuits, and jars of Pasta Sauce. Those items helped to complete the 184 parcels that went out through the month of May, to help 231 adults and 117 children, thank you.

 We received a thank you from one of our agencies who requested a Lord’s Larder food parcel for a family who had to pay an unexpected bill, leaving them no money for food. When given the food parcel by the agency, “the family were so grateful they broke down in tears, they thought it was wonderful with the food helping them through a tough time until they got their next wage packet. “

                   Willow Workshop at St Michael’s, South Petherton on Saturday 17th March with Carol Cooke 

This fund-raising event was a great success and well supported. It was a fun and instructive day and the items we made were more rustic and inventive than the standard structure baskets. We used twigs etc from hedgerows and gardens and the vibrant red and green Dogwood introduced some lovely colour into our baskets, wreaths hearts etc. Carol was an excellent tutor and had brought lots of examples for us to copy and be inspired by and had provided wands of willow in various colours too. 

Diana and Mary would like to thank those who provided food for our event and all those that generally helped out on the day. The tasty lasagne and scrumptious Pavlova and Strawberry Cream Gateaux provided welcome sustenance during our lunch break.  

You can judge for yourself from the photos how industrious we all were and how much we enjoyed ourselves.
