Mayor of Swanley Cllr Laurence Ball visited the Food Bank on 7th February, meeting with Wendy and other volunteers. Hearing about the work that we do, Cllr Ball was saddened to hear of the very real need for the Food Bank in the community.
Cllr Ball and Wendy enjoyed a long conversation about the Food Bank. The Mayor had clearly put a lot thought into his visit, with pertinent questions for Wendy such as how people receive vouchers, how the system works, what type of situations lead to people needing our help.
Time was also given to explaining how much time, effort and money has gone into renovating the new Lynden Way premises. With the lease up for renewal in December it is fantastic that the Mayor knows how much time and work would be at stake if we have to relocate.
Cllr Ball learn a lot about our work, and thanks to Wendy, Chrissy & the Friday team for making him so welcome.
