Oswestry Cambrian Rotary were pleased to recently present a cheque for £500 to Liz Jermy, Manager of Oswestry Food Bank.

Anna Pugh, President of Oswestry Cambrian Rotary said, “I am delighted that our Rotary is able to assist the Food Bank and I am amazed to hear that it is currently providing support to over 8,000 people in Oswestry and the surrounding area.”

Liz explained that the donation will be used to provide 50 meat vouchers from a local butcher and distributed to local families and others in need.

With Christmas rapidly approaching and the difficulties so many people are in, more and more reliance is being placed on Food Banks. Even by those in employment!

When anyone is next buying their next lot of provisions in the supermarkets, please give a thought to buying an extra tin of something or packet of dried goods and drop it into the trolleys or boxes near the door for the Food Bank.

The Oswestry Cambrian Rotary is ready to welcome all genders and couples of 18+ from the local community who want to be “people of action”.  They meet face-to-face at The Wynnstay Hotel, Church Street, Oswestry on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm in the bar. Alternatively, you can join from anywhere via their Zoom account connection.

For more information on what their new style of Rotary has to offer contact Mike Lade on 01691 570917, info@oswestrycambrianrc.co.uk or see www.oswestrycambrianrc.co.uk.
