Watford based Charity working wonders in Wales


Watford based Humanitarian Aid Charity Goods for Good has continued making an impact in Wales.


Recognised for its donations of goods and equipment in support of refugees, asylum seekers, the homeless and the disadvantaged in Neath Port Talbot and surrounding areas, the charity is also acting as the catalyst for collaboration in both Private and Third Sectors by building a network of care.


When it was contacted by Dina and Tim Tobin of the Cardiff English Language Academy about a gift of toys and clothes, it contacted its local agents A2B CIC. They in turn approached their logistics and support sponsors, JES Group Ltd and through the staff at their Skills Academy, arranged collection and distribution to local Port Talbot Charity The Bethel Trust for distribution through its Baby Banks at Bethel Community Church, Aberavon and Sandfields Presbyterian Church.


A spokesperson for A2B CIC said, ‘’This is a great example of collaboration and cooperation working for community benefit across south Wales. The Tobin family and their business made great effort and sacrifice collecting, and buying baby clothing and toys originally destined for Syrian and Iraqi refugee camps following the devastation created by Isis. When the logistics of delivery proved impossible to overcome, they contacted Goods for Good, who contacted us. We in turn enlisted the support of the staff at the JES Skills Academy and they made ultimate delivery to the Bethel Trust’s Baby Banks possible. Aberavon and Sandfields are both areas of very high socio-economic deprivation - among the worst in Wales. This situation is unlikely to improve as the impact of the redundancies on the employees at the Tata steelworks and the supply chain companies take hold. Collaboration of this sort is vital if we want our community to survive and prosper and not crumble. Disadvantage and poverty are on our doorstep, without address, these will lead to further inequality, lack of opportunity and a relentless, self perpetuating life cycle of despair. The work of organisations like the Bethel Trust supply the ‘glue’ that keeps our community together. The generosity of the Tobin family and their business, the logistics and help from the JES Skills Academy and the overarching support from Goods for Good help that glue to stick’’.
