The Missing Rollerblade Mystery

We hope you've had a good start to your year. Things were quiet in the run up to Christmas but since Boxing Day you have been very busy! We've seen a big rise in visits to Streetbank and lots of new people joining. We have been trying to work out why. Perhaps you have been seeking good homes for unwanted Christmas presents or perhaps you were feeling a bit hard done by on Christmas Day and looking to provide a good home!

We were interested by a new report by the Charities Aid Foundation on giving. Apparently 58% of us in the UK say that we are willing to help a stranger and that puts us only 26th in the international ranking. Still the majority of us are willing and that kind of behaviour is exemplified by Sandra who found three pairs of rollerblades in her road in Hammersmith and has put up a notice in an effort to find their owner. We salute you Sandra and the 58% that you represent!
