Twenty Christmas hampers have been delivered to Pembrokeshire Care Society (PCS) clients this week as a special festive treat.
The gesture was made possible by an extremely generous donation of £1000 from St Mary’s Church in Tenby.
To make the process fair, every PCS client was put into a hat and twenty names were then randomly drawn out.
Each hamper, totalling £50 of food, was filled with Christmas treats from Aldi in Haverfordwest, who graciously collected all of the items in the store ready for collection and sorting.
From Christmas puddings and mince pies, to crisps and chutneys, the packages included everything you’d need for snacking over the entire festive period.
Michael Hooper, Managing Director of PCS, said: “We always go the extra mile for our clients and this Christmas is no different.
“After a generous donation from St Mary’s Church, we were delighted to be able to put together twenty hampers.
“The smallest things can make a big difference and we saw that first hand when we went around the county delivering them this week. Every single person we delivered them to was simply over the moon.
“As the homeless problem continues to grow in Pembrokeshire it’s important that as an organisation we continue to do more and more for our clients. First and foremost that means preventing homelessness whenever possible, as well as getting rough sleepers off the streets and into accommodation.
“But our support never ends there and I’d urge anyone with the means this Christmas to make a donation – no matter how big or small – to combat the homelessness problem in Pembrokeshire. Any donations to Pembrokeshire Care Society always go directly to helping those in need the most.”
