Organisations in Cardiff, Newport and Swansea receive Easter donations from Peter’s
Organisations across south Wales have received an Easter surprise from local pie manufacturer Peter’s Pies.
Wales’s premier pie maker donated turkeys to the Huggard Centre in Cardiff and Salvation Army corps’ in Swansea and Newport so that visitors can enjoy a traditional turkey dinner over Easter.
The Huggard Centre provides support and help to people who are homeless and who find it hard to maintain independent accommodation. It houses a day centre and emergency bed unit as well as facilitating supported accommodation with dedicated workers for tenants.
Peter’s Marketing Manager Claire Conway said: “After Christmas, Easter is the next date to enjoy a traditional turkey dinner. The donations are a simple gesture to support the continued good work at the Huggard Centre and Salvation Army.
Speaking about Peter’s donation, Godfrey Lewis, Day Care Team Leader at the Cardiff Huggard Centre said: “The holidays can be a lonely time for some, but support is available. For those who are without a home for whatever reason, we are here to help.”
Carol Alderton from the Newport Salvation Army corps said: “This gesture will go a long way over the Easter holidays. We’re grateful to Peter’s for their support.”
The Swansea Salvation Army also said the turkeys were a great help, as the centre cooks a dinner every Wednesday for over sixty visitors.
Peter’s also donated Easter eggs for staff.
Claire Conway added: “The staff help to improve the situations of so many people, and we felt they deserved a treat this Easter too.”
