In this most difficult of years, people have great worries of their own.

We believe, nevertheless, that it is more important than ever that we help others

The Hereford Times Christmas Appeal 2020, in partnership with the Herefordshire Community Foundation, aims to help seven LOCAL charities in each of the key towns where the Hereford Times is read.

We invited the county’s mayors (and the mayor of Hay-on-Wye) to nominate a charity to receive an equal share of the funds raised.


The Mayor of Leominster, Cllr Clive Thomas, has nominated Community Wheels "a vitally important community transport service, providing users of all ages and needs with door-to-door travel."

One user, Anne Watney, uses the service regularly.

She said: "It's extremely valuable to me because I have had to give up driving, and I have to go to the hospital every month for an eye injection.

"Community Wheels are brilliant, they have never once let me down.

"Through the first lockdown I was advised to continue with the injections, and Linda, Tracie and Katie at Community Wheels always found me a driver.

"We are very, very lucky to have them."
