Bags of love

Bro Celynnin supports over 80 families with a monthly food shop, much appreciated help in these challenging times.  We also respond to emergency need and have supported families with the supply of school uniforms.

News! There are now collection points in Conwy Culture Centre and the Spar (Conwy), as well as all our churches!

Thanks to all who have donated Easter eggs as an extra treat for our families.

At Christmas-time, we were able to assemble bags with extra treats because of some wonderful donations. We are very thankful to our volunteers who always come to pack bags and make deliveries – and to Ysgol Porth y Felin for making Christmas cards!

If you would like to help …

There are collecting boxes in all our churches and Conwy library. In-date and non-perishable staples please!

  • You may also consider making a one-off or regular financial donation to this work (making sure you let us know that’s what your gift is for).
  • We are always looking for volunteers to join our team to shop and deliver our bags of love. Simply contact us by e-mailing here.

Thank you, Ysgol Llangelynnin, for helping us pack!


  • Thanks to Tesco (and all who voted for us via the token scheme), for their donation of £1500 and ongoing support. Also, to Spar for their monthly vouchers.
  • The ‘green token scheme’ at Asda gave us a very helpful financial windfall. Similarly, thanks for those who helped and those who gave at the recent stall in Tesco, Llandudno Junction. Both of these things have increased our partnership working with businesses and increased visibility in our community, as well as helping us sustain this vital work.
