Has anyone else been approached today by a male in the shopping precinct - asking for change to buy food?

Maybe someone in the know about what organisations are out there for vulnerable people could provide assistance for this young man.

I may be a cinic but I always question in my mind is it food or drugs . If itís not food then one is helping to feed the habit,
I personally prefer to get them some food instead of giving them money.

There was a blonde guy begging for money in the Lidl car park last week and quite persistent. He was then seen injecting himself outside Lidl. So sad and the police canít do anything. I had my 5 year old granddaughter with me so hurried to my car. Not nice to see.

Maybe one of the local churches could put this individual in touch with Victory Outreach, which has residential centres in South Wales, or Teen Challenge (Llanelli, I think). These organisations have great success in getting people clean from addiction and giving them their lives back.

Good advice from above post - for all those in need of help you've got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
