South Wales builders’ merchants, Robert Price, has donated a collection of food and toiletries to Abergavenny foodbank, which has seen more demand than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of rising energy prices and government cutbacks to Universal Credit, the foodbank relies heavily on individuals and organisations for donations.
Janet Jefferies, Branch Manager at Robert Price Abergavenny, said: “The whole team were honoured to do what they could for our local foodbank”
“Offering our support and helping those in need of this lifeline seemed like the least we could do to assist.
“I hope we can make this a regular contribution, and I’d like to give a big thank you to everyone in the team for their donations.”
Kate Hooten, who leads the Abergavenny Foodbank, added: “We manage all of the food donations by weight, and the Robert Price collection weighed in at an amazing 90.2kg!
“With further government cuts, it’s looking like we have a busy time ahead. So, these donations will enable us to restock in readiness for the coming months.
“Thank you so much to all the staff at Robert Price for their generosity, it is hugely appreciated!”
