|Local residents making a food donation|
|Councillor Iqbal helped us plan for the day and came to lend a hand|
|Local taxi drivers gave us their support|
|The African Women's Help Group donated food|
The food was donated to the Living Waters Christian fellowship and we raised £431 on the day!
Of course, we are still collecting. Donations can be dropped off at Darnall Forum or Darnall Post Office.
Some people like to carp, and criticise us because the majority of the people we work with are of South Asian heritage. They seem to think this is unfair, even though people from South Asian cultures and backgrounds are in the majority.
How refreshing it is, then, to see generous people from all the different communities in Darnall coming together to support a good cause, and to see Christian and Muslim organisations and volunteers working together to help those most in need.
Sylvia Hamilton from Living Waters Christian Fellowship, which acts as the local collection and distribution point for the Burngreave Food Bank, said, "Thank you so much for supporting the Food bank in Darnall with a collection of food. Zahira and all the volunteers, you were absolutely brilliant in the way you organised the event and got involved. The result was awesome in spite of the weather. I hope you all get chance to have a rest and recover. Keep up the good work!"
