KNIGHTON ROTARY SUPPORT THE LOCAL FOOD BANK

In these difficult times the members of the Knighton and District Rotary Club have been looking for ways to support those most in need of help in their local communities. These include towns and villages such as Knighton, Presteigne, Bucknell, Leintwardine and beyond. The first call for their assistance was from the Knighton and East Radnor Food Bank and the Rotary Club responded immediately with a generous donation towards essential store cupboard items. As Food Bank coordinator Helen Anderson said “The Food Bank ensures that only those who are genuinely in need of help are supported, and we are proud to assist them in these difficult times.” Knighton Rotary Club President Chris Price added “We are fortunate to have had the support of our local community in fundraising this year. Being able to give back to the Food Bank and others when they need it most is very rewarding”. If you are aware of any other groups providing additional support to the community during this difficult time, and who are in need of help, please contact the Knighton and District Rotary Club through their website. Stay safe.
