THE WREXHAM Foodbank team has announced it has moved its warehouse to a new location in order to 'continue to serve' its community.

The foodbank also has a further seven centres where its clients can receive a food parcel.

However, it has now confirmed that its main warehouse located at Felin Puleston has moved amid 'health and safety reasons' at that site.

The new location is at unit 3 of the Edwards Enterprise Park on the Rhosddu Industrial Estate.

It will be accepting donations as of Tuesday (November 21) and will then be open every Tuesday and Friday between 10am and 3pm.

Confirming the move, a statement from the chair of trustees, Suzanne Nantcurvis, read: "Due to ongoing health and safety reasons at the Felin Puleston warehouse, the trustees of Wrexham Foodbank have taken the decision to move to another site in order that the foodbank continues to operate as usual to and serve our community. 

"Moving our stock from one warehouse to another was a massive challenge but we were relieved to have the support of the staff from Rhosddu Carpets. Their efforts after a full day at work were absolutely magnificent.

"They have helped us to achieve our priority of enabling us to keep our satellite centres stocked with food for clients to receive.

"A huge thank you to the staff at Rhosddu Carpets who made our move to new premises possible and a thank you also to our wonderful staff and volunteers who make this organisation to special."

The Wrexham Foodbank team provides three days worth of nutritionally-balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them in crisis.


They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Donating to its latest campaign between now and December 5 will have double the impact.

That is because the team has partnered with The Wrexham AFC supporters, the International Dragons, who will match any donation £1 for £1 (Up to £1,200).

The foodbank supports individuals and families with food, toiletries, pet food, nappies and baby food.

It can also provide sign posting and access to services such as debt and money advice.
