Mark left the food bank today with…boots

Mark, who visited the food bank last week, called into this London Trussell Trust food bank today – and walked out with new boots!

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.
