A PRESTATYN holiday park and a Rhyl community charity are helping keep food banks full.

After shutting the camp on Friday, March 20, Presthaven Sands has donated a large quantity of supplies to The Trussel Trust's Prestatyn and Meliden service, the King's Storehouse at the Wellspring Christian Centre and the Fforyd Comunity Centre.

The team contacted the 91 strong Rhyl community charity Belief to help put their excess supplies to good use while the camp is shut until after the Easter holidays.

Steve Evans, a founding member of Belief from Meliden, said: “During such uncertain times, we at Belief are determined to help ensure that people do not go hungry by helping to keep the foodbanks full.

“Demand is currently high, and with many people losing their income, demand is expected to become much higher, we as a community cannot allow anyone to go hungry.

"After visiting two local foodbanks on Tuesday, March 24 with donations we were extremely humbled to hear from the lovely Natalie Harmes, Michelle Osgood and the amazing team at Presthaven Sands, offering a huge donation of foods.

"Sadly the park has had to close, and our thoughts are with the staff. Meaning the shop had a lot of excess supplies, which we distributed to the Prestatyn and Meliden, Kings Storehouse and Fforyd food banks. "We'd like to say a huge thanks to Natalie, Michelle and the fantastic Haven team."

The support is particularly welcome for the group, who are unable to hold fundraising events during the lockdown.
