Letters and emails from speakers and recipients of donations
I will post here any letters or emails received from recent speakers and others.
Please accept our grateful thanks for the donation of food and cash from the Wye Valley Rotary Club. I acknowledge the £100 cash donation for Xmas turkeys and the many boxes of food items we will use for our breakfast provision throughout the year.
We have passed the canned soup onto our partners, St Peter's Church, who provide soup and sandwiches to the homeless on Sundays. A few items have been passed on to the Hereford Food Bank where they will help families experiencing financial difficulties and therefore in danger of becoming homeless.
It is clear the number of homeless people in Herefordshire has increased this year. There are probably a number of reasons for this but primarily it is down to a lack of resources to help people get through difficult situations. Hereford Open Door now provides a weekly clinic staffed by the District Nurses as well as podiatry and barber sessions. There is more that needs to be done and we will continue our efforts to provide solutions and support.
Our very best wishes to everyone at Wye Valley Rotary and thank you again for your continued support.
