Volunteers at Tyisha Foodbank at Tyisha Positive Action Group have been boosted by news that their efforts to help people through the worst effects of the Covid-19 outbreak will now be supported by £10k worth of funding from National Lottery’s Awards for All.
The charity has already provided tens of thousands of meals for local residents in recent months as well as assisting those who require further advice and support on issues including housing and benefits.
More and more families are feeling the effects of Covid-19 in Llanelli not just on their health and well being but also on their pockets. The economic damage is starting to be keenly felt with jobs and livelihoods at risk making it a struggle for some to provide the basics for their families that most of us take for granted.
Foodbanks across Wales have seen an increase in need for their help and Tyisha Foodbank is no different in that regard. The grant from National Lottery Awards for All will be invaluable in allowing volunteers at the Foodbank to continue to deliver a lifeline for those who need their help the most.
