A great morning had by all as we serviced the water stop at mile 6; 100s of bottles of water were grabbed by the runners as they passed us.

Over half the club members, along with families and friends, were at the event- a great turn out. Clearing up did not take too long and we were eating in the park or at the pub by lunchtime.

A humbling example of Generosity

The story below is one experienced by one of our members when assisting with a Food Bank collection at a local supermarket.Foodbank milton keynes

I met generosity yesterday during foodbank collection. A gentleman on receipt of our list at ASDA asked me to get our own trolley. He said he would not be able to manage his own trolley and  our shopping . I told him "its only few stuff from our list that he will need to get for us". He said "I know but that I should come with him." I went with him  with one trolley and am still speechless till now. He filled whole trolley with every item on the list. For each Item on the list he did put in minimum of ten tins each.  I stopped counting at one point.

 

He never said a word. He went to the till and paid for it and I thanked him. I managed to hold back tears when I thanked him. He continued his shopping and I went to off load  my trolley of food. I have never experienced such generosity since collecting food for charity.

 

I am glad I did and will continue to support Rotary/food bank.

As a Rotary Club we were responsible for the catering, cakes, tuck, tea and coffee and a big BBQ.

We had a really fun time and over £11,000 was raised in total by the event."
