We have been working hard at our sorting warehouse as evidenced by the figures. The volunteers work hard to make sure your parcels are opened as quickly as possible so we can acknowledge on our website. Our latest “thank you” post, dated 12 October 2016 is now on the website. And we are still opening parcels every week so if you don’t see your name please look for it on the next monthly thank you post.
