Apparently, word got round to one of the volunteers at another food bank in the borough that his only pair of shoes were falling apart. So she kindly brought in a pair of size nines from home. She also gave him two great jackets.
The 29-year-old, who has a dry way with him, told me: “I’m only saying this because there’s no men here. I’m giddy with excitement.” I could tell he was fairly pleased, though. Happy weekend, all.
