Yesterday we launched the first Fuelbank in Wales.  Working in partnership with NPower and the Trussell Trust we are now able to offer eligible clients vouchers for fuel alongside their food parcels.  This enables us to relieve the choice between eating and heating that so many families face when in financial crisis.  We are very pleased to be the first foodbank in Wales to offer this service and we look forward to being able to help our clients with this new service.
