donation of goods to the foodbank

Melin Homes is pleased to share the news that it has teamed up with two of its residents to support the creation of a new foodbank, ‘Helping Hands R-Us’ to support communities in the New Inn, Pontymoile and Penygarn areas of Torfaen County Borough.You can find ‘Helping Hands R-Us’ website here.‘Helping Hands R-Us’ reached out to Melin initially as the organisation was looking for a storage space for its donated items and was fast running out of room. We were very keen to support the new foodbank and it just so happened that we had some spare space at Ty Clarence which we weren’t making use of. We have now signed a lease agreement with ‘Helping Hands R-Us’ charging a token £1 rent. This means that the foodbank can now operate from Ty Clarence without having to worry about ongoing storage costs and can concentrate on serving communities in need in Torfaen.
