Calling all young future volunteers!
We're looking for digital champions to assist with our upcoming project.
We believe no-one should be lonely in our community. Lockdown has really cut off the most vulnerable amongst us. We want to ensure that everyone can benefit from technology; whether that's staying connected on social media, completing your online food shop or even calling family members on video chats. We also want to raise awareness of internet safety and where information can be found.
If you or someone you know would be interested in joining our team - tag them below or message us for more information.
*Our digital project won't be launching until lockdown restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so - more information to follow.

Tin on a Wall is back! We're looking for Street Champions for our February collection.
We've decided to stay with a Saturday morning collection for this month following the success of last month's collection. We were in awe of the generous donations we received - you lovely lot are really fantastic.
If you are available to collect on the morning of Saturday 13th February and able to drop at our hub by 1pm the same day; post below the name of the street you would like to collect from and a member of the team will be in touch to confirm.
Thanks all! Here's to another successful collection!
*Collections for Wattsville and Cwmfelinfach will take place Wednesday 10th February from 7pm as usual.

Thank you for another amazing collection!!!
We're always so overwhelmed with gratitude with our community after a TOAW collection. Over 2.5 tons of food collected which will make a massive difference to our charities. This month our charities are RCV Foodbank, St David’s Foodbank, Risca Foodbank, all creatures great and small, Pantside Foodbank and HCT homeless project.
This week has really made us see the important services food banks provide to families struggling financially at the moment. Everything you donate from a single tin of beans to a bigger care package is appreciated, needed and redistributed to those in need.
Thanks to our volunteers for giving up their Saturday mornings to collect an impressive haul! We hope you're resting up today - you can start strength training for next months collection tomorrow

2020 was a hard year for us all. As we begin this new year we're asking everyone to remember that we've all gone through a lot in the last few months and it's still ongoing for so many of us. Wherever you can, show kindness. We all need a little kindness right now.
If you or a relative is isolated at the moment - get in touch with us and see how we can spread some kindness to them this January.
