A susprise donation over coffee

A susprise donation over coffee

BoB/BoS members were enjoying a morning coffee when Margaret, an elderly member of the public, was spotted by South West BoB/BoS coordinator, Shirley. It turned out that her and Shirley worked together in a primary school about 10 yrs ago.

She asked me what I was doing these days and I explained to her about BoB/BoS and H4H. She then proceeded to tell me that when she had her 80th birthday 2 years ago she asked people to give her money instead of pressies. In total she was given £600 which she proceeded to donate to H4H because her son has served in the army.

She was invited to join in for coffee and she thoroughly enjoyed meeting the BoB/BoS ladies and gents, we all gave her a round of applause for her kind donation. It was a lovely moment for all. Unfortunately she didn’t want her photo taken (82 and camera shy!!).
