Foreword by Dafydd Jones, Chair Brecon Food Bank Trustees
Brecon Food Bank is proving more and more to be an essential part of the community in Brecon and its surrounding area.
Last year we fed over 550 people – including nearly 400 adults and more than 150 children. Overall we passed on more than 6 metric tonnes of food, hygiene products and pet food. The stark fact is this: without our Food Bank a sizeable percentage of our population would go hungry and would also lose some or all their self-respect.
It’s only the generosity of the public that enables us to operate. All our food is donated – via our collection points in shops, banks and cafés, by churches, and by individuals coming to our base in the St. John’s Centre. Without these gifts, we would have nothing to give.
This Art Auction is the most ambitious fundraising venture we have undertaken in our five year existence. The money we raise will help fund extra projects we run to help our clients, help pay the rent of our small office, and assist with the salary of our hard working part-time Project Manager.
So a big thank you to everyone who has made this occasion possible: to the artists who have so freely given their work; to our Project Manager and the volunteers who have organised the whole event; to Chancellors who have kindly sponsored our event with leaflets; and to you who have come to view and to buy. Every pound you spend will be very well used in a very worthy cause.
