Friends of Chernobyl’s Children Monmouthshire Are an independent charity, who aim to improve the immune systems and general health and wellbeing of children who live in Belarus in the areas most affected by the Chernobyl disaster.

They bring children, accompaniedmby interpreters, to Monmouthshire (Three children are coming to Wyesham) for recuperative visits. The children will stay with host families but attend a centre each day, they receive dental and optical check, enjoy activities and outings and return home after a month with a supply of vitamins and donated clothing as well as many happy memories, if you have any children’s clothes age 5-12 no longer needed please think about donating it to us. Caroline will collect if necessary contact 01600 714603.

Do you believe in food waste? We at Food Box Monmouth don’t. A new initiative that collects surplus edible fresh food from local supermarkets and gives it out to people in need in our community.

The group was started by a few like minded, forward thinking people, whose aim is to stop the vast amounts of food that would otherwise go into the bin and put it into homes who need it.

So far Food Box Monmouth has collected and distributed 11 tonnes of surplus edible food equivalent to 35,000 meals.

People in need can come and collect it from their closest distributor in several areas of Monmouth, or have a delivery to their homes for people who are struggling to get out.

Fruit and veg comes with a small charge,just to cover transport as it comes mostly from Cardiff so a
£2 box is worth over £10 or a 50p bag for a carrier bag, so if you or someone you know could use a little help just check out facebook for notification when food is available in your area. If in Wyesham contact Caroline Pearce on 01600714603 to be put on my list I will deliver as and when.

a wonderful coffee morning on May 21st 9.30am – 11.30am. Raffle and homemade cakes. Everyone welcome.
