“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.

Got to meet the lovely Janet R-Lewis from EASTSIDE FOODBANK SWANSEA – who (along with others) are great things donating a lot of their time to help run the place.

This is now what the shelves at the food bank look like:
