Devizes Food and Drink Festival
On Saturday 28th September we had a stall at the Market Fayre, which the Food Festival committee very kindly let us have for free. During the day we talked to lots of people about the food that we provide to our guests, as well as the opportunities that this brings to address their issues. We had a great deal of interest, met some interesting people and raised close to £100 in donations. Pictured to the right are Rachel Bull and Angie Carpenter, looking very fetching in their new Opendoors aprons!
Next year we hope to participate at the Food Festival with a pop-up restaurant. Thanks to all those who stopped by to have a chat and find out more about us.
A huge THANK YOU to Steve Clements and Alan Sharp for raising £1200 for us by walking the 87 miles from Ivanhoe Beacon to The Sanctuary, along the Ridgeway in five days. A remarkable achievement - well done! This donation amounts to a very significant contribution towards covering our costs.
A huge thanks to all of the lovely people who have donated clothing to us recently. We don't have all of your names, but please be assured that your donations are already making life a whole lot more comfortable for our guests. Thanks particularly for the very generous donation of brand new underwear and socks. Thanks to OHM Clothing Ltd for thinking of us again.
A big THANK YOU to Co-op Funeralcare in Maryport Street for their very kind donation of cakes last week. They were very much appreciated!
