her garden they quickly stepped in a formed a small team of willing volunteers.

Garden in double quick time. The pictures here showing the work in progress and
the final result.

Here we can explain where the money goes from the local community to help the local community. Of course, some people who we help would rather prefer that their hour of need is not made common news, and I'm sure that a lot of people would understand that we cannot explain all the help we give. Suffice to say that every penny raised goes to good causes
