Yvonne Simms runs the Holiday Hunger Allotment project in Salford which grows organic, healthy fruit and vegetables for children in her community. 'Miracle Mucks' Phil Rennie had read Yvonne's story ' Yvonne Simms – A vision to create ‘Community Hubs’ in Salford ' on Verve's blogs and offered to volunteer his services to do the repairs that she needed doing. The allotment shed roof and the chicken coup needed to be secured, with a list of other jobs that she needed doing but couldn't afford! Phil went to meet her and arranged to get started on the allotment to get it in good shape for the Spring season.
