Citizenship Awards 2019 - Ben O'Loughlin

Published: 17 September 2019


Ben put in a tremendous effort in to encouraging Poundland shoppers, to make donations to the Neath Town Council Mayoress Egg Appeal.

I initially met Ben in 2018 when he helped us with our first Easter Egg Appeal, which was arranged in conjunction with Neath Inspired. Ben was very keen to help and I made sire that he was given a vote of thanks in all my public Social Media posts.

In 2019 we decided to launch an Easter Egg Appeal again, but this time NTC were soul organisers. Once again, Ben was very keen to help with the appeal but this time his support saw an unprecedented amount of eggs being donated by Poundland, with over 700 eggs coming in from them alone.

This went such a long way to providing the under privileged children of Neath with an Easter Eggs and lots of chocolate goodies. We were also able to donate a very significant amount of eggs to Neath Food Bank and several other local charities.
