Tomorrow morning local residents and I will be helping pack bags for Waitrose shoppers in Caversham. We will be raising money for Mapledurham Pavilion's replacement hall.
You'll be able to spot us a mile off as we'll be sporting red Christmas hats at the tills. Please support the fund raising as the community needs a new hall - the Pavilion is in dire need of replacing, but the Council doesn't have the funds to do so.
I hope to see familiar faces during my stint - apologies in advance if my left shoulder slows me down. I had a cortisone injection in the joint today which left it feeling most peculiar. Anyway, you're invited to let us help pack your bags, or indeed pay us not to - your choice!

Update: We raised £527, including a £25 donation from Waitrose. Thank you all very much for your support!
