A PROUD son has said he is carrying on his mum’s ‘legacy’ as the pair prepare to selflessly give up their Christmas Day for a special reason.

Sue and Steve Malson who work for charity Trac2 will be delivering more than 100 Christmas dinners across Pontypool and Newport to those in need.

The pair will also be giving out Christmas presents to children.

Mr Malson said: “My mum is the CEO of Trac2 which has been running for 15 years.

“I have been doing it for four years and it has really opened my eyes.

“When I was child, I’d never see my mum Christmas Day because she would be out helping. It’s nice because I am carrying on her legacy.

“People will be getting a three-course meal of starter, a main with a choice of turkey, lamb or beef and a chocolate pudding for dessert.

“Justine Flowers works a lot of overtime and she’ll be out delivering the meals with us as well. We have been to flea markets to try to raise funds towards the meals.

“Last year we delivered 46 children with presents and they each got 10-15 gifts each.

“The other week we saw a post about a boy wanting Star Wars figures so we travelled down to Swansea and gifted him with 60 figures as a donation. He was so happy.”

Those receiving the hot meals will be homeless and vulnerable people who have been identified through the charity.
