What a fantastic day we have had today. Debbie Jones (Asda Community Champion) popped along with a cake and non alcoholic bubbly and a BIG cheque for over £32,000 towards our roof and boiler fund. She brought with her Her boss, Steve and Matt the Spondon store manager. They met the many volunteers who came to celebrate with us. We are looking forward to arranging the work in the coming months. And our really sincere thanks to Asda for their very generous grant.
