Lee and I are supporting the Evening Post’s campaign to help struggling families this Christmas. We urgently need donations of money, food, clothes, vouchers and toys to ensure that everyone in Llanelli is able to enjoy the festive season.
Please bring any donations to our office at 43 Pottery St, Llanelli SA15 1SU, where they will be distributed by the Trussell Trust, Lifeshare and the Salvation Army to appropriately assessed families. Anyone wanting to volunteer can get in touch on 01554 756374 or 01554 774902.
Most needed are non-perishable food in tins and rip apart packets and more luxurious food items for Christmas (see full list below). Clean clothes from warm jumpers to new underwear and money or vouchers are particularly welcomed for older children and teenagers, as are toys for younger children.
