FOODBANK OPENS AT THE Y CENTRE

Porthcawl Foodbank has been officially opened by town Mayor Councillor David Newton-Williams, at its new location in the Y Centre, John Street, Porthcawl.  Demand for Foodbanks continues to grow and after recently transferring from Griffin Park to the Y Centre, the Porthcawl Foodbank is now open on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings between 10.00am and 12 noon.  The Thursday morning sessions will offer clients the opportunity to seek assistance with form filling, CV writing etc. and to benefit from the supervised use of a computer.  Clients are also signposted towards other organisations that may be able to assist them and cups of tea, coffee and toast are available for anyone who wants to pop along for a chat, especially if they are lonely or isolated.
