Clyro, Hay, Llangorse and Llangynidr school pupils, families and staff gave over 180 children’s Christmas gifts that were taken down to Swansea on 14 and 15th December by Val and Tim and Lawrence and Ailsa. The gifts will be distributed by Unity in Diversity and Swansea Asylum Seeker’s Support Groups before Christmas. In addition HBTSR were able to donate some money thanks to our generous supporters so that additional gifts or vouchers could be given to all people as well as helping with seasonal celebrations in both Swansea and Newport.. As in previous years, we were astonished by the generosity of local people especially at a time of financial recession.
The county chairman of the Powys-Brecknock Federation of Women’s Institutes issued a challenge to her members to try to knit over 100 bobble hats in recognition of 100 years of their existence. They easily exceeded this target and she was able to give over 70 hats to HBTSR for distribution in Swansea. There were some beautiful colours and will be much appreciated.
Thanks from Sandra Morton Chair of Trustees of SASS
The great present packing and distribution is done.
All the gifts we received were so caringly wrapped and some of the messages that had been written were lovely.
