As part of a charitable drive for local, low-income families, the Morriston team is urging residents to drop off food and other essential items at its store.

Collection point

The public has until 10 July to contribute to the collection point that Specsavers Morriston has set up at its store on Woodfield Street. All donations will be transferred to the Salvation Army’s Morriston branch for distribution ahead of the school holidays.

Essential items needed include tinned and dried non-perishable food, such as pasta, rice, cereal, condiments, long-life milk, sugar and flour. Toiletries and hygiene items, including baby nappies and wipes, as well as colouring books and pencils, are also welcome.

Contribute to the well-being of families

Wyn James, store director at Specsavers Morriston, says: ‘We are urging anyone who would like to contribute to the well-being of families in our city to come and see us in store before 10 July.

‘The summer holidays are a wonderful opportunity for families to spend more time together, but they can place an additional financial strain on those facing hardship. We’d like to encourage everyone to pop by. Every contribution, big or small, will make a difference to someone this summer.’
