Conwy Valley Rotary in association with Golygfa Gwydyr (Llanrwst) have been operating a temporary food bank the since the start of the Covid-19 lockdown for families and individuals in Llanrwst and Rural Conwy – an area stretching from Eglwysbach and Tyn-y-Groes, to Cerrigydrudion and Capel Curig, Llangernyw and Cwm Penmachno, Dolwyddelan and Llanrwst – who through the current Covid-19 pandemic find themselves in food hardship.
Funded initially by Conwy Valley Rotary, grant funding has subsequently been received from several sources including from NFU Mutual Llanrwst, the Steve Morgan Foundation and many other local businesses, organisations and individuals, enabling the continuation of this support.
Residents throughout rural Conwy that are struggling with food hardship due to losing earnings through Covid-19 either during or after the lockdown, should speak to Rosie (Golygfa Gwydyr) on 07843 766054, or to find out what’s available within the community call Conwy CBC helpline 01492 575544.
All help from the foodbank is confidential so don’t be proud, if you need it, help is at hand.
In addition to the food bank we have been told about these Welsh Government grants that do not have to be paid back that may help local people although the conditions are a little “tight”.
