Today’s foodbank collection was a great success with 967 items of food and other items donated to Rhymney Valley Foodbank. We expect to hit the 1,000 mark when late deliveries are counted.

The Trust  also donated £100 to the foodbank and there was a great response on the day with many fans also donating cash and others making payments to the Trust for the foodbank. The final total will be announced when we have it.

It was great to have a visit from Cardiff City first team players Rubin Colwill and Oliver Denham who brought donations from the club’splayers to our collection point and City mascot, Bartley also came along.

Thanks to everyone at Cardiff City for their support and generosity and also to the huge number of Bluebirds fans that gave food to help vulnerable families and individuals in these very trying times with so many struggling to afford food and heating. .
