These sessions are free, and donations (suggested £5) offered will be sent a local charity of our choice. Last year together we donated £2,285.00 to Platfform, a Welsh mental health charity.
This year we have decided to support the Abergavenny Food Bank. Food poverty is prevalent everywhere and our donations will help alleviate some of this sometimes invisible suffering. Since the beginning of the year we have donated £1000, to the Abergavenny Food bank so far this year. This was their kind response after our first donation:
‘Please do convey our thanks to your group for their generous gift. We are very grateful for your kindness and support.
During the last year we have faced significant challenges to our normal way of working alongside a huge increase in demand for our help. Referrals from agencies have risen by 50% and are predicted to rise even further as we face even more economic uncertainty with the continued lockdown and more people in our community face hardship and poverty. During the crisis, it has been wonderful to see an outpouring of support from across the community. However when faced with shortages in specific items we are able to purchase stock and additional items such as towels, cutlery etc. as well as manage our regular outgoings through generous financial donations such as yours. Thank you once again for your support for the work of the foodbank, helping people who are struggling at such a difficult time.’
