Another successful Give and Take event!

March in Bentham wouldn’t be complete without the BEST Give and Take Day. By 10 o’clock last Saturday the Town Hall upstairs was crammed with things no longer wanted but too good to send to landfill, and there was a queue of people outside waiting to see what they could take home. The doors opened, and after 90 minutes of what looked like chaos, the process was almost complete, and it just remained for us to dispose of the relatively small amount of stuff left at the end. Thank you to everyone who Gave and Took, and to those who donated cash to help us cover the costs of the room and hard-working electrician Iain. As one visitor said: “So many smiley faces, either because they were getting rid of something they didn’t want, or because they’d found something they did. Great.”
