The amazing team at Canolfan Pentre were delighted to receive a grant for £1,000 from the Asda Foundation which will go towards providing Christmas lunches for 70 adults and 40 children. 

This Christmas will be a special one as the centre had to close last year due to Covid-19 and could not put on any festive celebrations. Our community champion Karen said: "During the pandemic the team helped the elderly within the community and handed out food parcels and support. The donation meant a lot to me as I've been a volunteer there for over five years and have got to know all the lovely members of the Wednesday bingo crowd." Centre manager Ruth was delighted with Asda's support, saying: "This Christmas is going to be a great celebration. Just being able to be able to celebrate together again means so much. Thank you Asda Foundation."
