Welcome to the
Talbot Community Centre
With Amazon Prime day coming up on 21-22 June, do you know we could get double donations through Amazon Smile?
Amazon Smile lets you nominate a charity to support through your purchases - when you purchase eligible items, Amazon makes a donation to us from their wallet.
On Prime day, Amazon donates double on any purchases through Amazon Smile to the chosen charity.
To set this up, follow these easy steps:
1. go to www.smile.amzon.co.uk
2. Log in using your usual Amazon details
3. It will allow you to choose a charity by searching by name or charity number of any charity you like (Talbot Community Centre charity number: 1115943 HINT HINT)
4. You will be shown your charity details and asked to confirm this is the right charity
5. You are now able to donate without costing you a penny.
If using the app, search Amazon Smile and it will guide you through the process
Once you have chosen a charity, it will ask if you want to make Amazon Smile your default Amazon page or app. If you do so, then all items will show if they are eligible for Smile donation
While we would appreciate choosing Talbot Community Centre as your chosen charity, we heavily encourage you to choose any charity for Amazon Smile as it costs you nothing but could really help support a charity close to your heart.
The Talbot Community Centre is a former Miner's Institute and a true community centre, as it is owned and run by the local community, for the community and most of the people involved are volunteers.
The former Talbot Miners' Welfare Institute, was a gift to the village from the Talbot family in 1911, it remained as a Miners Institute until the last colliery in Kenfig Hill closed in 1959, it then fell into disrepair and was closed for several years before a group of community volunteers decided something needed to be done with the landmark building.
After receiving grants from groups like the Big Lottery and other support the Grade II listed building was reopened in 2005.
Since then, we have prided ourselves on the variety of groups using the centre, from traditional Shotokan karate to sewing and from bingo to Slimming World. Details regarding the activities offered is available on our Weekly Diary page here. However, due to the coronavirus, we are unable to offer many services in the community centre for the time being. Instead we are offering a meal delivery service, available on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, offering a main meal for £4.50 with optional dessert for £1.50.
We are hopeful that we should be able to return to normal during 2021 as soon as it is safe to do welcome everyone back into Talbot Community Centre.
