CHRISTMAS PUDDINGS AND FOOD PARCELS
Pembrokeshire Foodbank, based in Narberth received a welcome present for
Christmas from the members of the Narberth & Whitland Rotary Club earlier

the Narberth Primary School, Bloomfield Community Centre and many church
congregations who all support this worthwhile charity obtaining and providing
food for those people desperately in need in times of financial personal crisis.
There are three other centres of the Pembrokeshire Foodbank located in Pembroke

people experiencing crisis in the UK. The logistics of sorting and weighing the
food donations in the basement of the Foodbank headquarters is quite a
challenge. Assisting in this task the volunteers sorting the boxes are:
