A Red Cross-style food parcel was delivered this morning.
It was anonymously sent, and yet I know it is from.
The large parcel contained sweets, chocolates and a very generous amount of spending money, on Sainsbury’s pre-paid cards.
I am touched by this display of generosity, especially as the sender can ill-afford to be so open-handed.
Another friend called this afternoon, threatening to drive the 140-mile round-trip from her house, with a car full of food.
She, too, can scarcely afford to be so kind.
I am so lucky to have good friends like these.
