Food bank appeal relaunched as local situation worsens

October 17, 2021 - 368 views

Two community focused groups have joined forces in Llandudno to re-launch their Foodbank appeal.

In the wake of rising fuel prices, plus the withdrawal of the £20 Income Support supplement, Hope Restored and Llandudno Rotary Club are asking for donations to help people who have found themselves homeless and strapped for cash or food.

Sadly the current situation is creating more demand than ever for help. Hope Restored is now focusing on giving food to referrals from social services, the community police and voluntary and social support agencies.

If you can spare a few items of food (other than perishables) or household goods (soap/toothpaste/cleaning materials), you are helping local people to get through a difficult time.

Small pack noodles, long life milk, breakfast cereals, jam, cup a soups and  tins of meat/fish are especially welcome.

You can leave your donation at Hope Restored, Llandudno Baptist Church, Great Ormes Road, West Shore or at MSI Alarms, 9 Llewelyn Avenue, Providero Coffee Shop, Upper Mostyn St, Kazszana Polish Minimarket, Mostyn Avenue or Craig y Don Co-op, Mostyn Avenue.

Llandudno Rotary has had a longstanding working relationship with homelessness charity “Hope Restored”. Since the start of the COVID Pandemic in March 2020 this help has extended to creating and servicing a network of donor points.

Chris Drew from the club said:  "We hope you can help. If you have any queries, or feel you can help this vital work  in any way, do contact Ian and Margaret Trevette on 01492 650871. Many thanks indeed."
