Hope Restored food bank with Brenda Fogg
Food donations in Rowen
Message from Ian and Margaret Trevette
Dear Neighbours in Rowen and Friends in the wider Community
Registered Charity no. 1161114
Firstly, we hope you are keeping safe and well. This message is not only to
update you on the operations of the “Hope Restored” charity food bank,
but more importantly to thank you all very much for the very generous
donations of food , that continue to be deposited weekly at our collection
point at Ty Hwnt yr Afon, Rowen. Also for the donations of
money for the Charity that have been received from both within the
Community and from further afield. The recent donation of a high value
Tesco voucher that can be redeemed for food , is very much appreciated .
We thank the donor for this kind gesture.
As you will know , since our appeal for Hope Restored first went out in
March 2019, with the continuing devastating impact of the pandemic on
the economy of our area , the demand has not diminished for the support
given unreservedly by this Charity to those most in need. Resourced with
volunteers, it remains steadfast and stable in these uncertain times.
Our latest update this week from Brenda Fogg is that “ Hope Restored “ is
now issuing between 80 to 95, seven day food parcels per week to
individuals , couples and families. With this level of demand, your ongoing
support for the food bank is therefore very much needed, and would be
very much appreciated.
The picture shows the food donated in the week up to Saturday last.
Tinned meats, fish , tinned meals such as meatballs, curries , etc are now
more needed in the Winter months. However, whatever you are able to
donate, will be gratefully received.
Finally, should you wish to donate food etc and are unable to deliver to Ty
Hwnt yr Afon (on junction at centre of Rowen), we would be happy to make
a pick up. Just give us a call on the telephone contact details below, or
drop an e mail .
Again , many thanks for your support, and look after yourselves.
