Poultry farm's present
A LOCAL food charity received an extra-special delivery on Christmas Eve.
The Devon and Cornwall Food Association (DCFA), which stops good food going to waste and feeds dozens of hard-up city people, had an unexpected call from a nearby meat and poultry farm.
Staff there told the charity they had some frozen turkeys they needed to shift to make room for fresh stock.
So DCFA secretary Geoff Read and two colleagues took an early-morning drive to Sladesdown Meat and Poultry Farm, in Ashburton, to collect the fifty-plus turkeys.
