Powys under the stars was set up to collect money for Newtown and Knighton foodbanks. We wanted to hold an event for people to join together in Newtown’s park and spend an evening under the stars with buskers and ghost stories etc. Sadly the event had to be cancelled due to family issues, this has left us feeling sad & concerned as we know the foodbanks are so important to many families in our areas. With the introduction of universal credit later this year there is a fear that the foodbanks will be hard hit which is last thing we want in our areas Powys
Can you help us in our endeavour to raise funds that we will be donating to the two foodbanks who do so much work for people in the towns we represent. It’s not all about food, there is so much more that the foodbanks help individuals and families with. Support is invaluable when people find themselves in a difficult position It isn’t only people on benefits who use the foodbanks it is families and single people on low incomes/minimum wage and zero hour contracts, people who have become overwhelmed with life. No one knows what tomorrow will bring we could be hit by an illness that prevents us from working, or redundancy, we are all only one step away from thing changing in our life’s and many have to wait for benefits to be set up, leaving them struggle.
It’s hard for people to have to ask for help, so let’s try to make this easier for those people in need. We have already held a cake and coffee stall and made money that has been put into an account and we have received some donations from lovely people who want to help make sure others have support. We are looking at more events. Please support us as we try to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. It would be great if you are willing to donate as little or as much as you feel comfortable to do and we promise to make sure it is all shared between Newtown and Knighton foodbanks
