Conwy Food Bank move to new premises

In the past week we have moved the food bank log stock and barrel to a business unit at Conwy Morfa Business Park , kindly provided by CCBC for a period of three months rent free.

This will allow us to continue to process donations and deliver food parcels whilst being able to observe social distancing rules.

The response of the local authority and local community in their determination to insure the food bank continues to be able to sustain it's ability to provide food parcels for those in need in Conwy, has been overwhelming .

CCBC gave us an immediate £1,000 to buy food, which with another £3000 [of a total of a £15,000 grant] earmarked for the purchase of food from the Morgan Foundation, £500 worth of food purchased and delivered to us from Colwyn Bay Rotary club means we are able to restock and insure we can meet the demand. In addition of course we have the substantial donation, the fruit of much hard work by Guto Lewis at Bocs Storage from the Dewi Sant dinner on February 27th.

Verse of the Day

Sanctuary Trust works with homelessness and homeless related poverty and emergency homeless issues. God's Sanctuary was the vision of Sheila Halsall after seeing the level of homelessness Rochdale and later the homelessness Conwy and the substance misuse such as Drugs and Alcohol. By Providing emergency shelter for the homeless in supported housing services funded mainly through Supporting People we assist other providers such as Shelter homelessness, Petrus and Stepping Stones who are also supporting people through women's and men's hostels and floating support. We also have STEP Emergency overnight provision. With our work in Wales we partner with Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) as they provide financial help for homeless through emergency shelter and their Supporting People funds. There are different kinds of accommodation available but what is needed is good quality supported accommodation with a strong business and development plan. We have also provided consultancy service to help others move closer to an answer to homelessness. Our social enterprise company, Sanctuary Trust Enterprises runs Noah's Ark Play Centre, The Storehouse Charity Shop.
