South Wales homelessness charity Llamau has been handed a £1,000 Christmas donation by a Blackwood firm.
The donation was made by building insulation company SERS, based in Commercial street.
The money will go towards buying Christmas presents for the young people, women and children supported by the organisation across Caerphilly County Borough.
Staff from SERS raised a total of £1,161 by undertaking the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge earlier this year.
The gruelling ordeal involves hiking up the three highest peaks in Wales within 24 hours. The money is to be divided equally between Llamau’s projects throughout the borough.
The charity works across 11 local authority areas in South Wales and is celebrating 25 years of providing support to vulnerable members of the community.
Sam Austin, Llamau’s Operational Director, said: “Christmas can be a remarkably difficult time for many of the young people and women we work with. We try and give everyone we support a Christmas present and to do so we are dependent on the generosity of the local community.
“This fantastic display of good will from SERS has ensured that all the people we support in Caerphilly will receive something this year.”
