I just wanted to say a huge thank-you – The Pantry is a wonderful service which makes such a difference to so many people.
The smiles, the friendliness, the family environment: thank-you to all the staff and volunteers, you are all so lovely.
Thank you for creating awareness of domestic and family violence, and connecting people to services and support.
