So here's a brief report from this week's Costa Nothing.
No pictures as we're lame and forgot to bring a camera. Oh, actually, I lie. A few pictures were taken by a photographer from the Oxford mail who complained that we were late (supposed to start at 2pm but rolled up at ten past - oh these volunteers - you just CAN'T get the staff these days). Anyway, he got got huffy because one of the crew wouldn't do an 'angry' pose (her default pose is chirpy!) and left quickly to 'go to Wantage'.
We got through the cake a lot quicker this time, especially as it went to feed some hungry people who had the munchies.
We would like to do it again BUT:
1. It's getting expensive. We've had £4 back in donations - but have spent over £25 for the last two weeks.
2. We're running on a crew of 5/6. To maintain something like this takes people. The people who have been involved so far are also involved in many other activities, and - believe it or not - have full-time jobs; more people are needed to sustain this campaign.
So we may not do it next week. But if another crew wants to take it on...If you want to come and play then email dizzydaisy[at]riseup.net
