We're giving away cans of Cwtch in support of Solas Cymru who do incredible work looking after vulnerable people. With sites across South Wales, they tirelessly work to get people off the streets, with some specialist services looking after women, children and families.
We’ve got a price list based upon what they need the most, and each corresponds to how many Cwtches we’ll give you back, with sleeping bags and socks being among the most valuable items. This isn’t an exhaustive list, though, and we’re not going to turn viable donations away. It’s just a collaboration of what they’re after the most, rather than the only things we’re taking. There’s no end to what’s needed.
Just bear in mind, we don’t want your shirts that have gone grey from one too many washes; socks with holes in them or mugs with years worth of tea stains: everything has to be in excellent condition — underwear and socks have to be new, food unopened and in date.
As with general service in the bars, our Challenge 25 policy applies and you’ll only be served if you’re carrying a valid form of ID. There’s a maximum of 6 cans per person donating (though if you want to bring in more than this, we are certainly not going to stop you!) and we ask that you take your cans with you to cwtch-up at home with.
If you’d just like to donate something, with nothing in return, well that’d just be really cool of you. We’ll probably give you a high five or a thumbs up anyway.
You’ll be able to donate throughout opening hours on Sunday 18th March at our three bars until stocks last:
Wern Ind. Estate, Newport NP10 9FQ
22-23 High Street, Newport NP20 1FX
25 Westgate Street, Cardiff CF10 1DD
