Plaid Cymru’s candidate for the Alyn and Deeside by-election Carrie Harper today visited Buckley’s volunteer-run Pay As You Feel shop, which distributes surplus supermarket food, which otherwise go to waste, to local people.
Speaking to volunteers at the shop Carrie said: “This is a fantastic project that is even more vital since the roll out of Universal Credit in Flintshire, which is hitting many people hard. Both the local foodbank and the pay as you feel project have seen demand increase for their services as a result.”
The shop, which operates from Buckley Town Council’s premises, has been run by about 20 volunteers since the summer. They collect the waste food and volunteer in the shop as well. The project is keen to find premises that would enable volunteers to cook meals to make the most of the donated food.

Carrie Harper added: “Volunteers today told me about the need to find a ground-floor premises to accommodate this brilliant project in order to make it even more accessible. They currently have a first-floor room which isn’t easy to access either for volunteers bringing in produce or for customers.

“If anyone in the Buckley area can help with more suitable premises for the pay as you feel shop, please get in touch with me on 07484 841 407 and I will put you in touch with them.”
