There are times when managing a small front line charity can pretty trying. Covid 19 means over 20000 hungry individuals and families will be arriving at our door looking for emergency food. As sure as night follows day, inflation is going hammer up the price of food and power and already limited means will suddenly be incapable of paying for life's basics.

Demand for emergency food will keep on going up and trying to raise enough cash to make help the people we need to help will continue to get
harder. A few years ago we used to be able to look to Trusts and the
Council and the Government to help us out. Now it seems the only show
in town for most of the front line charities is the community.
