    A True spirit of Christmas

    Hi all. I have today taken a carrier bag of shopping to my local Community Larder for the Food Bank. It only cost be approx. £2.50.

    Can I implore all those members who are able, to please donate food items to a local Food Bank, to help those who are unable, have some festive treats for Christmas.

    I have myself, been in a position, in the past, to seek the help of the Food Bank. This was a lifeline, and I have since then, donated when I have been able.

    The spirit of Christmas is to give, unconditionally. So please, if only one tine of peaches, please help those in dire need.

    Thank you dear members, and I wish you the very best Christmas you can possibly have. Best regards, Susie

    Will give a bag of goodies to my wife's pal who has a great deal to do with a local food bank as a Christmas gift to you for posting this generous idea. Happy Christmas.

    I always did one for a boy and one for a girl.

    As a child/teenager I used to save up pocket money to buy items for them!

    Today the teen came home and said his school are doing the shoe box thing and it has to be in by Monday,
    I know I will enjoy filling it later, but at the moment I am slightly peeved at the lack of notice, plus wet and tired after joining the world and his wife in the £shop, after all the whole reason I (thought I was) finished early was to avoid the crowds.
    Reckon I deserve to open the port early,just a small one
