For the love of my community - Ipswich.love

Dear Ipswich, I hope you are having a great week.

I would like to thank the people of Ipswich who step up to help others, who think not “what’s in it for me ” but ” how can I help my Town, my community ” during hard times we have had community groups and individuals organising food parcels for the vulnerable.

I’ve been fortunate enough to see this work close up to see the tireless work being done to help others.

People helping those suffering from loneliness and isolation.

People working to bring communities together.

I’ve been fortunate enough to see this work close up to see the tireless work being done to help others. This has made me fall back in love with my Town and restore my faith in humanity. So all those people who make up the beating heart of Ipswich I thank you

Love,

Glen Chisholm
