PATCH relies on help from our wonderful volunteers and donations from generous people, businesses, schools, churches and other organisations across our county.
If you are interested in volunteering with PATCH or helping us in any way at all then please get in touch – we would love to hear from you!
All our donations stay in Pembrokeshire.

All donations for our emergency Basics Bank will be gratefully received – thank you!
We are always in need of tinned food, packets, and any other non-perishables that are in date. We cannot use dented tins even if they have been bought that way. We would also be grateful for fresh fruit and vegetables as well as bread and milk.
Examples of tinned goods: meat, sausage & chicken meals, ravioli, curry, macaroni, chilli, bolognese, cold meat (corned beef or Spam/ham) fish, soup, baked beans, spaghetti, kidney beans, chickpeas etc, tinned tomatoes, custard/rice pudding, pasta or rice, tinned potatoes, tinned vegetables, tinned fruit
Examples of other non-perishable foods: spaghetti or lasagna, cook-in-sauce (bottle or packet), packet noodles/savoury rice etc, cereal, coffee, tea, treats (biscuits etc),UHT milk, sugar, soft drinks, jam, marmalade, flour, pickles, sauces, gravy powder
We also provide some small household items, from cutlery and plates to bedding and towels. Small practical electrical items (toasters, kettles etc.) are PAT tested and given out. We are always in need of items such as: towels, pots and pans, crockery (not tea cups), cutlery, tin openers, kitchen utensils, kettles, toasters, irons, lamps, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, nappies, washing powder, shampoo/conditioner, soap, deodorant, sanitary wear, toothbrushes, tooth paste and razors.
Clothing & Textiles
We need all clothing from underwear to coats and everything in between, with a particular need for men’s and boys’ clothes as there are more ladies’ items donated than anything else.
All textiles and shoes, in whatever condition, can be sent for recycling and this raises money for the project (with the exception of duvet and pillows which have to be in perfect condition please).
We also need large sealable cardboard boxes and carrier bags.
PATCH also requires finances for project costs such as telephone bills, paper, utilities, etc.
Any regular donations or one-off donations will be gratefully received – click here to find out how to donate.
Please note we can only take items for emergency situations as we do not have storage for other donations e.g. books cds etc.
