“Thank you so much for everything. We know that thanks to everyone we don’t need to spend time getting urgent appeals out for a long time. We are all so happy and relieved that we won’t have to turn people away.” – Eastbank Foodbank Swansea
Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thanks from myself and We Make Good Happen to all the people/groups/ #Cardiff that helped contribute food/spread the word for the Swansea food bank that was on the verge of closing down.
They only had a few cans on the shelves and it was the first time in 2 1/2 years that they thought they were going to close down.
A few weeks ago I drove down to Swansea with a van load of all your contributions. Collectively it was a great effort. And you can now see from the pictures that the shelves are now full and they have a good pile of backup food too. Which importantly means people, families and children that really need it are receiving food.
This is now what the shelves at the food bank look like:
Thank you to: (and everyone else I’ve missed – you know who you are so BIG thanks!)
