LOCAL BUSINESSES OFFER A ‘CWTCH' TO PEMBROKESHIRE KEY WORKERS                                                       


A new initiative was launched this week to show appreciation to 100 local keyworkers by providing them with a gift box of luxury items kindly donated by Pembrokeshire businesses.


The initiative, which has been set up by local business owner Sean Lade, aims to provide little luxuries, rather than essentials, to locals who need our support right now as they work daily to support our community. 


By filling up the boxes with local produce, Cwtch Box aims to showcase the fantastic local businesses around Pembrokeshire and help inspire recipients to do more of their shopping locally in the future. Cwtch Box plan to include many more local businesses to help support them during this uncertain time.


Sean, of Blue Tree Home & Garden Ltd, Pembroke Dock said:


"The response from local businesses has been amazing with many coming forward to donate to the cause and show their appreciation for everything our keyworkers are doing"


So far Cwtch gift boxes are filled with local goods and produce from businesses including the Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company, Tan Y Castell, Upton Farm and Pembrokeshire Chilli Farm amongst others. With a starting fund of £5000, Cwtch Box will keep giving away boxes until it runs out. In the future they plan to offer Cwtch Box subscriptions alongside gifting the luxury boxes to our hardworking keyworkers.


The initial 100 boxes giveaway will be decided by nominations via their Facebook  page (Cwtch Box) and Instagram (@cwtchbox.wales), and names will be picked out of a hat. The gifting initiative will continue until the fund is used up.


Keith Adie from contributing business Upton Farm said:


"Great to be involved with a company bringing a little bit of comfort to the people that matter"


Whilst Jonathon of Pembrokeshire Beach Food Co added:


"It's fantastic to be involved in celebrating great Pembrokeshire produce with key workers in Pembrokeshire. It's a tough time for everyone at the moment and it is great to help where you can, stay safe."


Cwtch Box is a local mission that believes everybody could benefit from getting a famous Welsh ‘cwtch'. Cwtch Box are working with local businesses and produce suppliers to deliver a slice of Pembrokeshire to those that need a reminder of their importance in our community and a thank you for their hard work.
