A new van in time for Christmas for local charity

Robert Price Builders’ Merchants and Melin Homes partnered up to gift Pontypool-based charity, TRAC2, a new van in time for Christmas.

TRAC2 has been in the heart of the community for many years and continues to support those less fortunate. The charity has helped provide local families with beds to sleep in, cutlery to eat with, clothes to wear, gas and electric to light and heat their homes and food to eat. Through 2020, their help was needed more than ever, which is why the support from Melin Homes and Robert Price has been invaluable.

Sue Malson – Line Manager at TRAC2 said:

“When I arrived to collect the van donated by Melin and Robert Price, I was speechless. I don’t think anyone realises what a difference this will make. We will be able to help more people and provide a one-to-one service. Whilst our current van, Stan, has been amazing over the last eight years, he hasn’t always been reliable.”

David Pattison, Sales Director at Robert Price added:

“Since we entered a three-year partnership to supply Melin with materials in 2018, we have always fully supported their community benefit projects. This project is of particular importance to us as the work TRAC2 carry out is vital, especially now more than ever. As a major employer and supplier in the South Wales area, we believe that we should always give something back to our local community.”

Sue spoke further about the charity’s work:

“I am so proud of everything we have accomplished this year. We, as a team, and as a community are relentless in our fight against poverty and will not give up. The support from local organisations like Melin and Robert Price ensures we can keep going.”

Sue thanked both Robert Price and Melin Homes for their donation:

“We can’t wait to start using Suki – our new name for our new trusty van. Thank you to both Robert Price and Melin for their support.”
