Make a donation to Neath Foodbank this Christmas

Peter with volunteers from Neath Foodbank

Neath MP Peter Hain has urged people to make donations to Neath Foodbank this festive period to help those struggling to make ends meet. On a recent visit to drop off his own donation Mr Hain spoke with volunteers and heard how growing numbers of those in work were turning to the Foodbank as their pay was not stretching.Praising the volunteers Mr Hain said, ‘Their commitment and dedication to helping others is unbounded. The hard work and organisation that the volunteers put in, not just in the distribution of the food parcels but also in the cataloging and arranging the donations that they receive is tremendous.’

‘Whilst it is a sad reflection of the current times and the difficulties facing ordinary people, the caring spirit of the volunteers and the wider community through their donations, speaks volumes of the compassionate community spirit alive and well in Neath.’
