Food banks: What they need and where you can go in Wales

As my sister is coming to stay for a few days, we decided to have a bit of a clear out so, I thought it would be a good idea to post what they are most in need of and where they are across South Wales. Before Christmas I gave away loads of old books and un opened toiletries. (Scented products bring me out in a rash so I tend to stick with safe brands like Dove/Radox/Imperial leather)

Please share this page around on local Facebook groups in Wales as I can only imagine how much people are struggling with the expense of high living costs, little job opportunities, the expense of Christmas and their being a long gap between payments.
