Not very good ! We have not
achieved a lot. Time now to turn up the beat, time now to
rock for The Food Bank.
on Monday 7th October The Geriatric DJ will play on every
radio show he broadcasts a track dedicated to The Food Bank.
On Monday 28th October his entire two hour show will be
ROCKING WITH THE FOOD BANK.
The music will be used to raise awareness
of the need for Food Banks, to encourage people to drop in
gifts at various collection points but MORE THAN THAT we
want friends to stop and think before they make their gift,
to think about the person who will receive their gift, the
person who needs the gift and then to wrap it in love.
We will do everything we possibly can to
find new collection points. We will work with those who are
already running collection points to share the love of what
they are doing.
In this day and age it is DISGUSTING that
we need a food bank but thank goodness we have one.
Writing in early October 2019 we do not have a parliament
and government in Britain, our politicians are a sad joke.
is cold and does not show very much love at all to those who
need the Food Bank. However, local town and parish councils
in the area DO show love and support. We need to celebrate,
praise and THANK those smaller councils for what they do. We
can do this via our WoodstockMK programme.
The supermarket giants may have said get
lost when we asked if we could use their stores to promote
the work of The Food Bank but they are significant and
effective collection points. We need to thank them for this
and promote their locations.
We need to constantly be thanking the
team at The Food Bank for their work and love.
We need to come up with some ideas which
will generate some significant gifts. Could we perhaps do
something across Lent in 2020 ?
We need to turn up the beat.
