We have given a charity that helps Torfaen families in need a new van. TRAC2 will use the Peugeot Boxer to collect and deliver furniture to homes across the county.
The team divert tonnes of waste from going to landfill each year and stop low-income households borrowing from high-interest loan companies to furnish their homes.
Mark Doubler, our head of community and customer services, said: “Every year we are proud to hand over the keys to a home to lots of new customers. We can’t thank TRAC2 enough for giving so many of those customers a helping hand with essentials like a bed, a dining table to eat at and a sofa to relax on as a family. Our relationship with TRAC2 goes back around ten years and this donation will make it easier for them support many more families over the coming years.”
Nathan Yeowell, chair of TRAC2, said: “It’s fantastic. This is a much bigger van with much greater capacity. This van means we can pick up more of all those items of furniture and white goods that the generous people from Blaenavon through Pontypool down to Cwmbran donate to us and distribute them more easily to the families that need them.”
