A Varied Day
Enjoyed the variety of today's activities.
10am we opened up some new allotments in Rhos on Sea. (See previous post)
11.30am it was off to the Welsh Mountain Zoo to feed a couple of camels some of Conwy's Willow. This is difficult to shred in order to compost as when it goes through our shredding machine it tends to wrap around the blades and can cause serious jams. Any willow cut in our parks and gardens is set aside and bulked up and delivered to the Zoo and fed to the Camels, they love it and this saves us money and time from clearing our shredder.
1pm I helped out at Tescos in Junction bag packing in aid of Clic Sargent, Cancer and Leukaemia in Children, this charity assisted my wife and I when our daughter was poorly a few years ago, so we try to support them as often as possible.
Every day 10 families are told their child has cancer. As the UK's leading children's cancer charity, ClIC Sargent is the only organisation to offer them all round care and support.
