The Bishop of Dunwich, Dr Mike Harrison, visits the BASIC (Business and Service in Christ) Life Community Pop-Up Shop in St Edmund’s, Felixstowe, this week. Open every Tuesday morning, it sells bags of unsold edible food, destined to be discarded by supermarkets, for £1 each. The Vicar of Felixstowe, the Revd Andrew Dotchin, says that people queue for 45 minutes before the shop opens, and that 60 bags of food are sold within 20 minutes. “It helps people . . . who are in need but find it difficult to accept charity,” he said. “They pay £1; so there is a sense of dignity”
