Tai Tarian spread Christmas cheer with festive donations

Tue 21 Dec 2021

Tai Tarian, one of the largest social housing providers in Wales have donated hundreds of items to good causes in Neath Port Talbot this Christmas.

Through their community benefits scheme which sees contractors giving back to local initiatives, bolstered by their staff’s acts of kindness fund, a team of people have been busy co-ordinating donations over the past few weeks.

Christmas Day dinners, gifts, hampers, afternoon tea’s, thousands of pounds for food, gifts or clothing plus hundreds of selection boxes, chocolates and mince pies will all go a long way to spreading Christmas cheer at what can be a difficult time for many.

The organisation have answered the call from many charities and community partners who have been inundated with requests but have also identified hundreds of people within Neath Port Talbot in need of a pick me up or helping hand this Christmas time.

Tai Tarian staff also donated gifts to over 100 Young Carers living in Neath Port Talbot as a festive treat, with selection boxes added by staff’s acts of kindness fund.

Others that have benefited include The Bulldog’s Club, RNIB Port Talbot, The Small Things, Me Myself and I The Christmas Child Appeal, YMCA Port Talbot, plus several communities.

Rebecca Thomas Tai Tarian’s Economic and Social Regeneration Manager said:

“We have some wonderful charities in Neath Port Talbot carrying out vital work so we have been delighted to help them in spreading Christmas cheer over the last few weeks with gifts and monitory donations.

We have also worked closely with our own staff, partners and community leaders to be able to identify those in need and help as many people as possible with some lovely donations.

None of this would have been possible without our generous contractors who have donated without hesitation as part of their community benefits obligations and to our staff through their acts of kindness fund and individual donations.

We hope this combined effort will make a difference to many this Christmas.”
