Portmead Puddleduck advice on budget Christmas presents

A community-based scheme in two of the more deprived areas of Swansea - Portmead and Blaenymaes - has turned its attention to Christmas for the first time this year.

Usually the Portmead Puddleduck First Start project helps parents with childcare and community courses.

This year they are running a series of courses advising mothers how to save money by planning ahead for Christmas and by making their own presents.

It was during one of those sessions that Gilbert John joined them.
