There's a lot of good food and drink on the table, all made or donated by volunteers, friends and supporters. My personal favourite: Mike's orange oil and almond sponge cake.
There's a friendly supportive atmosphere to this low-key occasion, which is just as it should be, befitting the people and their purpose.
