Positivity in Pontypool
We will be collecting old and unwanted tech, if they work or not. (Phones, tablets, laptops, monitors, pc's & games consoles etc...) These will then either be stripped for parts or refurbished by our partner company and sold at huge discounts to those in need.
Once we have some money in the charity pot, we hope that Positivity can subsidise this so they can be sold even cheaper.
You can pop into the **NEW OFFICE** at 6 Crane Street (opposite the vape shop,above the chippy). to find out more or drop items off.
Community food share, drop off point.
We are partnering with a local community food share, (HELPING HANDS R-US) will be a drop off point for anyone wanting to donate food and we can also refer you if you need food. This is an amazing project that offers Non-Judgmental, no questions asked food to those in need.
If you have tins, packets, pasta, rice, baby food or baby milk you won't use, please drop it off at the office so it can go to local families in need.
From Poverty to Positivity
Pontypool is a small Welsh town in Torfaen in South Wales the U.K. it is also the town I love in. It is a town steeped in history, we have an indoor market and a beautiful park amongst other things.
Pontypool unfortunately has many problems though. Poverty is a huge problem in the area, which causes loads of other problems. I think positivity can change Pontypool into a town of positivity.
We know we have problems, which is the first step and that's why, I think we should talk about solving them. The main problems for me have been stigma, abuse, poverty, mental health issues, eviction, drugs, and many more.
These problems can be solved with positivity. So let's start talking about our problems in a positive way, let's talk about how we are going to solve them.
Do you know what's in the market? I didn't until I moved to Pontypool from Blaenavon. Pontypool indoor market is full of life, the stalls are full of great goods and services. Plus because they are in the market you know your gonna get great prices, they don't having to pass on huge rent costs to their customers. I believe passionately that if ae don't use the shops and stalls we will loose them. These are small businesses that have families to support.
I will help you make some extra money to spend at these business, helping the business survive. Hopefully you in time will be able to provide a service or product to them. This is how the circle of positivity works. It is also the reason we believe that we all need each other.
Below are some pictures from some of the many stalls that are currently in the market. Woolfall's 3DP www.woolfalls3dp.com, All Things Magical.
Let's celebrate the good.
I have big ideas about how Positivity can change the World and I have articles and videos from experts to back up my theories. Research done by universities and professors, Drs and researchers. We need to build each other up,instead of tearing each other down.
We need to celebrate the good, instead of focusing on the bad, celebrate success and give people hope.
So to do this I am proposing a good morning Pontypool news feature. It will be a place where we can hear about the good, hear how the ordinary people, are doing extraordinary things. How believing in Positivity is changing people's lives.
You can learn how other people overcame the problems you are facing today. You see we understand we are stronger together and we all need each other. No part of the puzzle of life is more important. To find happiness you need balance and moderation. You really can get to much of a good thing.
If you have something to celebrate and would like to be featured please contact me.
