Pay It Forward is an idea whereby you do a good turn for someone
without expecting any return. It began some time ago and has now
spread to Crediton, which we think is great.
An example of how you can 'Pay It Forward' here in our community
is that Ashtons coffee shop in Town Square will accept donations
added voluntarily by you to your bill when you are paying for your
coffee, lunch or snack. Then, when people who are less
fortunate come into the shop and ask if anyone has 'paid a
drink or sandwich forward', they can be given just that for
In a society where many people are struggling, even here in our
relatively prosperous part of Mid Devon, it's a lovely thing
to do to enable someone to enjoy the simple pleasure of
sitting and enjoying a drink or some food in a coffee shop when
they otherwise could not possibly afford to do so?
Perhaps you can think of other ways we could 'Pay It Forward' in
Crediton too or you may know someone who could truly benefit from
receiving such a small gift.
Why not spread the word and lets show what a truly caring
community Crediton can be in this way.
