This Christmas, Jistcourt supported 4 local charities, with help from some very generous donations from our suppliers, including,  AIS Building Supplies, LBS Builders Merchants , Exclusive Flooring and CGL Services. 

We donated 6 extra large boxes of food to 2 local foodbanks; CATCH in Ystalyfera and Newport Food Bank. The parcels included necessary items such as canned foods, pasta, rice, tea bags, coffee, milk and sugar, along with some special Christmas treats including Christmas Crackers, cakes, biscuits, chocolates and sweets. 

We also helped to support Llamau, the leading Homelessness Charity for the most vulnerable Young People and Women in Wales. To this charity, we donated gifts that could help those moving into a first home, or as Llamau call them, 'Get Set Packs'. Our donations included toiletries and grooming supplies, books, games, hats and gloves, blankets and throws, store cupboard essentials along with some extra Christmas Treats.                                                                                                                       

. The final charity we chose to support this year was the Mr X Appeal. We bought presents for 5 young local children, aged between 2 and 10, who otherwise would be without this Christmas. The gifts included age appropriate toys and board games, colouring books, sports kits and equipment, pyjamas, dressing gowns, warm hats and gloves along with some sweeties and chocolates. We delivered our sacks of presents to Dawsons Estate Agents in Sketty to be delivered to the family. 

We would like to thank our suppliers who very kindly helped us to support these incredible charities this year, and would encourage all to remember it is not just at Christmas time that these charities need support.
