Mission work should not be regarded simply for overseas countries, it can be closer to home than we would want to believe. PATCH is a Christian based local charity which began in 2008 whose website says is – “aiming to relieve the effects of poverty for individuals and families within the county of Pembrokeshire”. PATCH exists to assist those experiencing financial hardship and operates on a referral only basis from local agencies. They provide food parcels, clothing, toiletries and household items at no cost to the recipient. PATCH has collection points in Milford Haven, Pembroke Dock, Haverfordwest and Saundersfoot.
