Scarlets are teaming up with their community clubs to help bring vital food and goods to vulnerable people during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A number of local grassroots rugby clubs have already signed up to help deliver care packages of essential products to residents within their own communities.

People in need of these packages can get in touch with the Scarlets Community Foundation, who in conjunction with Carmarthenshire-based food wholesalers Castell Howell, will deliver to the local clubs. The clubs will then, through their own volunteers, take out the packages to the vulnerable in their locality.

Scarlets Community Foundation manager Caroline Newman said: “The team at Scarlets Community Foundation are thrilled at the support that has been shown by clubs in the region to support those most in need at this challenging time.

“It’s great to be part of an initiative that shows when times are tough people pull together for the benefit of others.

“The foundation would like to say a big thank you to those who made donations, Castell Howell and all the volunteers who are helping make this happen.”

If you know someone who is in need of one of these packages, please get in touch with the Scarlets Community Foundation on 01554 783933
