STAFF at Barclays in Milford Haven recently welcomed local children to the branch for a community Christmas party.

Children were entertained by the staff with face painting, Christmas card-making, colouring competitions, pin the nose on Rudolph, lucky dips and a visit to Father Christmas' festive grotto.

The three winners of the colouring competition were Toby Sturley from St Francis School, Millie Hagan fromMeads after-school club and Ella Rose Barrett from Hakin school.

The event was a great success and branch manager Julia Brady thanked all her staff, customers, local businesses, local primary schools and Father Christmas for supporting the event and making it a real community affair.

"Everyone came together to spread some Christmas cheer and most importantly support a very worthy local charity," said Julia.

The event raised more than £350 for poverty relief charity Pembrokeshire Action To Combat Hardship (PATCH), and also helped raise awareness of the work PATCH does within Pembrokeshire.

Barclays Milford Haven is now a drop-off point for donations for PATCH, and food parcels have already been flooding in.
