ABERGAVENNY FOOD BANK
This is to thank you for your kind donation to Abergavenny Foodbank during the period January to June 2018.
Abergavenny Foodbank is one of over 400 foodbanks run by the Trussell Trust, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line. In the last year throughout the UK 1,332,952 three-day emergency food supplies were given to people in crisis.
Here in Abergavenny over the last six months 3690kg of food and toiletries have been distributed to 513 people including 1878 children.
Your donation is taken to our warehouse at Abergavenny Community Centre where it is sorted, sell by dates checked and then stored or packed into bags ready to be transferred to the Cornerstone Centre to be distributed to people in need.
Individuals go hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.
Foodbanks partner with a wide range of care professionals such as doctors, health visitors and social workers to identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher. Foodbank clients bring their voucher to our centre at Horsingtons Yard where it can be redeemed for three days’ emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a warm drink while they wait for their individual bags to be prepared. They are able to lend a listening ear and signpost to agencies equipped to solve the longer-term problem.
Your kind donation of 88.73 kg has contributed to this and without your help we would be unable to support out community in this way.
A message from Charlie Jones.
We found out today that from the Jacobs fight money tin in the pub collected a total of £218! Taking our total raised from the fun run to £968! That is a staggering amount thank you everyone for your support!!! We have saved enough funds to order the bench in memory of Jeanette very very shortly, we are just sorting a few last minute technicalities! So hopefully within the next month we will have a new picnic bench in the village for everyone to enjoy!!! All remaining money raised has been donated straight to Jacobs fight!
We have received a message this evening from Rachel Price to say that one of their young sheep was badly mauled by a dog earlier today. It was found between the Church and Tresenny Brook. The sheep has since died. Rachel, who lives at Ashwood Farm but rents the grazing land, said in her email:
“It’s a shame that I cannot attach the picture we took so that people realise the consequence of not looking after their animals properly and letting them roam the countryside unwatched. Please can you remind people to not let their dogs roam freely”.
Message from Mary (and John Moore):
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported me and John as we fund-raise for the RNLI.
It was a good evening yesterday, a bit challenging for me I have to say but then fundraising often is a challenge isn’t it.
A huge thank you to The Angel Inn too for hosting my ‘and on the night, our’ haircuts, their support is greatly appreciated.
The point of the ‘scalping’ was to raise money for the RNLI. Husband John and son Martyn were rescued 100 miles out into the pacific when their boat sank. They were rescued by the sterling efforts of the Mexican Navy, spotter planes and Falmouth’s rescue co-ordination center. We can’t give money to the Mexican Navy, so the RNLI seemed a good choice.This means I/we can say thank you for those who go out there and risk lives to save others.
As you can see from the pictures we both had fun doing it even though its feels a bit cold on top this morning 😊.
So far the fundraising stands at £748, with a few other donations still to come. If you would like to add to the donations then please put money in the box on the bar in The Angel Inn or visit my justgiving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/M-Moore7
Thank you again everyone
MISSING….Our tortoise has gone on a walkabout on Monday 16th July…he’s very precious to us if anyone sees him please can they contact Rob or Margie on 240875.

Mary Moore is having her head shaved for charity.
As you probably know John and Martyn were safely rescued from their life-raft after our boat EMAR sank 100 miles off the coast of Mexico. We can’t raise money for the wonderful guys of the Mexican Navy so we are raising it for the RNLI instead.
I am having my head shaved in The Angel Inn, Grosmont on Monday the 16th July at 6.30pm. Do come and see if you are around. If you would like to support me and of course the RNLI then you can visit my justgiving page at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/M-Moore7 , put a donation in the box on the bar in The Angel, or of course see me 😊
We hope you can help us raise money for such a worthy cause. do come and see it actually happen.
Many thanks Mary and John Moore.
YOU WILL BE HAPPY TO KNOW THAT “BRUCE” HAS BEEN FOUND AND IS NOW SAFELY AT HOME.
