A CHARITY shop supporting families of domestic abuse has been overwhelmed by kind donations for their latest appeal.

In November Louise Rudd, the founder of the Walk & Talk Today charity shop in Ffynnongroew, put a post on the charity’s Facebook page asking if the public would like to donate gift boxes or gift bags with some gifts and sweets for the families currently housed in domestic abuse refuges throughout North Wales.

A target was set for 60 children and over the past month, the charity has been inundated with generous thoughtful gifts.

Susan Terry, a manager at Global Lift Equipment in Flint and a volunteer for the charity, turned her boardroom into a temporary Santa’s workshop and - with the help of her team - completed 152 individual gift bags and boxes, all of which were overflowing!

Louise commented: “We are overwhelmed by the response and the quality of the gifts donated, it is so heart-warming to know so many lovely people care for the families we are supporting”

The gifts are currently en-route to the numerous North Wales refuges and are sure to bring a smile to the faces of the families this Christmas.

The Walk & Talk Today Charity took the opportunity to say thank you to everyone who donated including - Customers and Supporters of Walk & Talk Today, Tesco Holywell & Prestatyn Branches, Unison, Flintshire School Nurses, Ysgol Bryn Garth, Ysgol Melyd, Ysgol Gronant, North Wales Police, DJs Line Dancers, Presthaven Holiday Park and Global Lift Equipment.

The Charity Shop, situated at Unit 3 The Old Boathouse, Main Road, Ffynnongroew, CH8 9SW

is ran by entirely volunteers and monies raised go to DASU to help support the families start their new journey.
