Sorry its late but here is the newsletter for March and April
Our 3 defibrillators in Abingdon- one at the Rugby Club, second at the Market Square, the third at the Abbey and Fourth one coming soon. Thank you for all your donations that makes this possible
Sadly, two of our members stepped down this month. First was Sue, our secretary we wish her well. Second was Ron, our welfare officer, we are all hoping that after a short break he will re-join us. They will both be missed.
Hopefully, we have two new members joining us, one of three visits down. The third meeting or activity is when someone become a member. We would love more, just £20 for six months, you gain friends, new skills and make a huge difference to people’s lives.
Well done Abingdon
I am really proud of the people of Abingdon. Today I went to drop off our monthly food bank donation and found the donation bin full. I also had a meeting with someone from the Abingdon Red Box Project and she told me how amazing people have been at making donation. So well done everyone
