She said: "The person I spoke to in her team about the donation said that Taylor wanted a message to be passed on to the whole team to say thank you for the work they are doing at Cardiff Foodbank. So I have messaged all of our volunteers, trustees and staff to say Taylor Swift has said thank you for everything that you're doing.

"It felt incredibly genuine and I was on the phone for quite a while having a chat when they told us, firstly to say thank you but also got to talk about the real difference that it can make.

"There was no expectation of us posting about anything, or that they would post anything. So we could accept the donation and do nothing. But for us, Taylor Swift using her platform and her voice to shine a light on what's happening in terms of poverty in Wales is really important.

"We are hoping that this will also help to generate awareness and get people talking to help break the stigma and to bring about change so that no one in Wales goes hungry."

The charity, which supports people across the city by offering emergency food to people in crisis, is part of The Trussell Trust's network of 428 foodbanks, which work to tackle food poverty and hunger in local communities, as well as across the UK.
