We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our community again – they really blow my mind! We already have over 300 eggs donated which is more than we can probably use.

So, two things: please can you spread the word in your churches/community that we really can’t take anymore. Also, if you know of any groups who would benefit from some eggs, please let me know.

Lent blessings,

Vicky (storehouse Team Leader)
