Xmas collection for the local homeless
« on: December 15, 2017, 08:57:21 am »

The Digswell Community Gardening Project is putting together care packages for the homeless this Xmas. Items required include basic toiletries, warm clothes, water, food, and books. A longer list below. The project offers training for people from the local community "giving them the opportunity to experience a supportive working environment". There is a collection point at the nursery. More information on the project's Facebook page. (Declaration of interest: My wife works as a volunteer helper)
