A group of 5 volunteers went to the Cathedral of St Alban last Sunday where they were presented with a donation of £1000, awarded to Waste Not Want Not by the Congregational Giving Team.
Graham, Hal, Melake, James and Project Leader Craig were presented with the cheque by Jeffrey John, Dean of St Albans.
Cream tea was served before the presentation giving a chance for the 42 charitable organisations present to meet each other and discuss their work.
Melaka was the obvious choice to receive the cheque, coming first by a long shot in the ‘best dressed’ category.
Everyone at Waste Not Want Not is extremely grateful to the Congregational Team for their support, not only this year but in the past.
The donation has enabled us to staff our Learning Garden site in Hatfield every Saturday for the next 16 weeks. We already have 2 new volunteers at the Learning Garden which is also open every Tuesday.
