Aid collection from the team at Buxton

IMG_1095Today with Bryan Selkirk, Alan and Margaret Miles we made a collection of aid from Longnor near Buxton in Derbyshire.  The collection was from the premises of David and Barbara Cox who with their local team had prepared over 2.5 tonnes – a full load for our small truck. The aid was of a wide range of high quality, superbly packed and fully manifested ready to be loaded directly onto a large trailer at our main warehouse in Yorkshire on Sunday.  Arriving at 11.15 am we were loaded within 40 minutes and we retired indoors to their lovely home where we sat down to a splendid lunch that lasted over two hours. Those who have collected aid previously from Longnor will remember well Barbara and David’s hospitality, their superb lunches and the fruit salad that remains legend among the aid team.
