Dig In volunteer, Roy (on the right in the photo) handed over a cheque for £1000, which had been raised and donated by his nephew, Alex Oldershaw. The presentation event took place in the Dig In polytunnel on March 12th, accompanied by some of Helen's homemade pumpkin soup and Mary's homemade fruit cake.
Alex raised the money through sponsorship of his participation in the Chicago Marathon in 2013. We are bowled over by his generosity!
The purchase of a park bench for the Dig In site will be first on the list, with the remainder being put to good use for repairs, equipment and materials for Dig In. On behalf of the Dig In management committee and volunteers, thank you again Alex, for your wonderful donation and support.
