Staff at the Sainsbury’s store in Pontllanfraith have thanked customers for helping them support a number of foodbanks across Caerphilly County Borough.
Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the store has supported four food banks, including the Salvation Army Risca Foodbank and Rhymney Valley Foodbank.
The store is also supporting the Ty Croeso hostel at the Wallich, Newbridge, as well as the United Welsh-run Ty’r Fesen in Caerphilly town, which provides short-term accommodation for people experiencing homelessness.
Linda Korczynski, who works at the store, said: “Sainsbury’s Pontllanfraith would like to give a big shout-out to all our fantastic customers and colleagues for all their donations they make week in week out.
“The community here at Pontllanfraith is amazing and without them this would not be possible.”
Store manager Sam Faircloth said he was “really happy” that local charities were able to benefit from the donations.
