In November we held a charity quiz night and raffle for our staff and asked our stakeholders and contractors to help us by donating prizes. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone we work with and our staff. So far we have raised £1589.31, which has been matched by Melin bringing the new total to a huge £3178.62. All money will be presented to our charity of 2018 Eden Gate in January.
We have entered into a three-year partnership with Robert Price Builders’ Merchants for the supply of materials. The group were successful at tender and will supply the housing association with a full range of building, mechanical and electrical materials from branches across South Wales.
The Minister for Housing and Regeneration, Rebecca Evans is backing our school’s programme. The launch was held at Abersychan Comprehensive, with staff and stakeholders talking about the benefits and exciting future of FACE, the new interactive and inspiring schools project. To mark the launch a careers fair, and wellbeing event was held involving the whole school and feeder primary schools.
We’re proud to be supporting and taking part in this year’s Dalmatian Bike Ride.
We’ve just been re-awarded our Gold and Platinum Corporate Health Standard from the Welsh Government. The Corporate Health Standard is part of the Welsh Governments ‘Healthy Working Wales’ programme and is the national mark of quality for health and well-being in the workplace. It is presented in bronze, silver, gold and platinum categories to public, private and third sector organisations implementing practices to promote the health and well-being of their employees. Only 15 organisations have achieved the Platinum award in Wales, and we’re thrilled to be one of them.
