Breakfast Club Helps Those Who Are Struggling
The cutest couple, who are both in their seventies, are providing a place for those who are lonely, struggling or hungry. WalesOnline shares how Angela Bullard and her husband, Fred, created the Splott Breakfast Club, and “along with their troop of volunteers – provide the people of Splott and Adamsdown with a hot meal, a bag of food to take away with them and most importantly somebody to talk to.” They love running the breakfast club, offering community support and engaging with the many people who stop by.

But this is not the important part of the story. The real story is how Obi refuses to fall into self destructive hate or anger. The real story is how Obi thrives and inspires. “I don’t have time for negativity.”
