The centre in Dulais Road has been particularly busy over the past few weeks and so contacted local commercial cleaning company, JDK Cleaning, to carry out a deep sanitisation clean. When MD, Jack Kelleher who is from Pontarddulais himself, saw the work the centre was doing, he came up with the suggestion of lending the centre one of his commercial vans.
Says Jack, “We’ve been carrying out a high number of sanitisation cleans over the past month and we have the luxury of having one of our vans on standby to cover emergency work. When I found out that the people working at the Canolfan y Bont were using their own vehicles to deliver food to local people who are either isolating or in need, offering them the use of our spare van was a no brainer! We’ll be lending the vehicle to the centre for a month with the possibility of extending the offer longer term if required.
“As a local company, and as I have many family members still living in the area, this is a great opportunity for me personally to support the work of the Canolfan y Bont team in the amazing work they do on a daily basis.”
In addition to lending the van, Jack has also made a substantial food donation to the food bank too.
