Cat puts out the call for supplies to keep food operation going

* The team from Pizza Palace on Castle Street who have been helping with the food operation.

Each day during lockdown the Llangollen Coronavirus Help Group started by Cat Meade and her friends has been providing lunch and dinner for 13 people who aren’t able to prepare food for themselves.   

To keep this vital service going the group has raised funds through regular raffles on its own Facebook page and there has also been strong support from Llangollen Rotary Club and Llangollen Inner Wheel’s Moira Gleed and Angela Jefferies along with Cat’s own mum.

Further support has come from local businesses Dee Pizza, Kelly’s Chippy, Llangollen Pizza & Kebab and Simran Shah at Aydan’s Tandoori.

Cat says that to keep the meals coming the group is still in need of supplies such as drinks, pot noodles, porridge pots, crisps, snacks, hot chocolate, tea, coffee and cups of soups.

She said: “If you would like to donate a bag of chips etc from an eatery or supply goods, If you can help we have set up a drop off point with Stephen Brady at Recollections Ltd on Abbey Road, next to the Bridge End. If you have an extra portion of food we can use or freeze, or if you can donate a £1 or anything you can via paypal at where I shop weekly at Aldi for goods.”

* Cat has also taken to Facebook to say a big thank you to her employers who have not only allowed her to use their office resources since the pandemic began but have also contributed thousands of pounds towards the work of the help group.

She posted: “As you all know I started this page along with Bethan Mascarenhas  some 10 months ago. 

“I have had a lot of help along the way from Admins to Volunteers, created Llangollen Raffles to fundraise and assist local businesses which has also bought a bit of fun to our community in the process. 

“You may also know by now that I have a full-time job running the Llangollen Wingetts branch for sales, lettings and commercial of which has been a very demanding year.

“I am very lucky to have a job that I love but also that has remained in full swing during the pandemic for which I am extremely grateful. 

“What you may not know that behind me I have two amazing directors in Emma Hayward and Leigh Hayward who own Wingetts.

“From day one I published our office number as a helpline, I published leaflets from the office printer, donated in our competition for NHS drawings which we displayed in our Llangollen office with £1,000 to Air Ambulance and gave prize to winner, staff have gifted donations and goods, supported local fundraisers and donated to all causes. 

“I have always loved my job and proud to be part of the Wingetts family What you don’t see is that Wingetts as a business has contributed over £5,000 during these past 10 months to Llangollen and my fundraising appeals. 

“We are family and we are #llangollenfamily we support one another. I just wanted to say a big thank you to Wingetts Ltd Wrexham & Llangollen for supporting me and Llangollen.”
