Local business help Caldicot Food bank redecorate their new home


Local Estate Agency and Property Maintenance Company, Capsel, recently donated their time and resources to redecorate Caldicot Food Bank ahead of setting up operations in their new venue.

The Caldicot foodbank were recently required to move from their existing premises to a building that had been vacant for seven years. The new premises required a serious makeover to get their new home up to scratch; redecorating a hallway, two storage areas and a w/c washroom including the floors.

Capsel worked closely with Monmouthshire Housing Associations Community Benefits team and Crown paint, jumping into action to gain funding and supplies.

David Flint, Chair of Caldicot Food Bank said: “Caldicot Food Bank works daily with to ensure that those in the Caldicot and Magor area, who are going through difficult times, are given the food and support they need. “

“In order to help make our new premises acceptable to the Food Standards Agency and our own volunteers, Capsel have cleaned and painted the interior. I express my heartfelt thanks to Capsel and Monmouthshire Housing Associations generosity.”

Cllr Murphy, Cabinet Member for the resources said: “I am so pleased we are able to support Caldicot Food Bank to continue to provide support for families in our communities.”

Run by volunteers, Caldicot Food Bank seeks to serve the local community of Caldicot and the surrounding areas. If you wish to donate to Caldicot Food Bank any donations can be left at Caldicot One Stop Shop, Caldicot Library or any local churches.”

The new home of Caldicot Food Bank has been leased from Monmouthshire County Council for a peppercorn rent.”

Katie Double, Capsel Service Delivery Manager said: “Capsel are delighted to be involved in this project and help Caldicot Food Bank set up their new home”.
