Christmas Pudding support for Narberth Foodbank

CHRISTMAS PUDDINGS AND FOOD PARCELS
The Pembrokeshire Foodbank, based in Narberth received a welcome present for Christmas from the members of the Narberth & Whitland Rotary Club earlier this month. This has supplemented the work done by other organisations such as the Narberth Primary School, Bloomfield Community Centre and many church congregations who all support this worthwhile charity obtaining and providing food for those people desperately in need in times of financial personal crisis. There are three other centres of the Pembrokeshire Foodbank located in Pembroke Dock, Haverfordwest and Letterston.
A cheque of £200 was donated to Theri Bailey, Manager of the centre which is based in the former Magistrates Courthouse at market Square, Narberth. In the picture showing the cheque presentation are, from left to right: President Elect Nominee Elaine Bradbury, Rotary Life Member Charles Rodea, Rotary International Chairman Nigel Towns, Their Bailey, Rotary Secretary John Sleigh and Hayley Archer.
The Rotary Club also donated one dozen Christmas Puddings which had been purchased from The Rotary Club of Cwmbran Vale to support their nominated Charity MENINGITIS NOW. Sitting next to the puddings and the packed food parcels is foodbank volunteer Hayley Archer and in the background Nicola, Irma, Carol, Richard, Theri Bailey and Roy.
The Rotarians were very impressed with the work of the Pembrokeshire Foodbank which was seeded and supported by the Trussell Trust which is a network of 400 foodbanks which provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK. The logistics of sorting and weighing the food donations in the basement of the Foodbank headquarters is quite a challenge. Assisting in this task the volunteers sorting the boxes are: Theri ,Richard, Nicola, Roy and Sarah.
