Puffin Produce Donates 1 TONNE of Blas y Tir Potatoes to the Scarlets Community Vital Care Packages Scheme

Puffin Produce have teamed up with The Scarlets Community Foundation – the charity arm of The Scarlets – to donate 1 tonne of their Blas y Tir potatoes to be included in care packages of essential products for vulnerable members of society during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each of the 500 bags of Blas y Tir potatoes will be included in the Scarlets’ next batch of care packages that will be delivered next week.

In partnership with Castell Howell, the care packs will be delivered to 40 local grassroots rugby clubs in the Scarlets region of Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion. Each club will then, through their own volunteers, take out the packages to the vulnerable in their locality.

Scarlets Community Foundation manager Caroline Newman said: “We are so grateful to Blas y Tir for the donations of produce to add to the food packs we are delivering next week. It’s great to see people coming together to support those in need during these challenging times. Thank you for helping us make this work.”

Huw Thomas, Managing Director at Puffin Produce also added, “We are proud to be able to support such a fantastic initiative. It really does highlight how important local community is in Wales and I am pleased that the most vulnerable at this time will still have access to essential everyday items, including our Pembrokeshire Potatoes.”
