THE FIRST distribution centre for the Llanelli Food-bank has been opened in Dafen at the Church Hall.

A crowd of volunteers gathered together today, Thursday (Jul 18) to officially open the provision and within minutes of the doors opening people were already using the facility, taking receipt of bags of food.
