Pembrokeshire’s Trussell Trust foodbank holds collection in Tesco’s Haverfordwest

Helpers from Pembrokeshire’s Trussell Trust foodbank are hoping Western Telegraph readers will dig deep this week and donate non-perishable edibles to feed local people in crisis.

The helpers will be in Tesco Haverfordwest store from today (Thursday) until Saturday to collect food donations from the public.

Thirty five Trussell Trust foodbanks operate in Wales, and 79,049 people in this country have received a three day supply of food from the Trust over the past year. The Pembrokeshire foodbank opened in January 2014, providing support and signposting to help those in crisis, in addition to feeding them.

Pembrokeshire foodbank is located in the Liberty Cafe, Grace Court House, Market Square, Narberth, and is open on Wednesdays from 11am to 2pm.

Satellite foodbanks operate in: Hill Park Baptist Church, Haverfordwest (access from the underpass near Morrisons supermarket) on Tuesdays from 10am to 1pm; St. Giles Church Hall, St. David’s Road, Letterston, on Thursdays from 11am to 2pm.

Whilst unfortunately people in our County are having to go to foodbanks do readers know that last year Simon Hart MP received £5,000 a quarter as a consultant for the Countryside Alliance. For this he was expected to do '6 hours work' a wk! This of course was on top of the not inconsiderable Salary and expenses he received as an MP. ( See 'they work for you' website) this is only one of several additional incomes that Mr Hart earned when he is supposed to be doing his job as an MP.

One should also remember that Mr Hart 's wife also earns an income for working in Mr Hart's Constituency Office.

No wonder he can afford to send his son to Private School and not a school in Pembrokeshire that his constituents children have to attend.

Mr Cameron says that 'we are all in this together' but some are in it a lot more than others aren't they Mr Hart?
