Staff have taken part in half marathons, charity breakfasts, the walk Wales challenge, MY20 challenge, raffles and held a charity golf day to help them hit their target and a little bit more.

“Thank you so much for all your fundraising and support! What a fantastic amount to have raised we cannot thank you enough.”

Paula Kennedy, Chief Executive of Melin Homes said;

“The Wales Air Ambulance Charity rely solely on charitable donations to keep their helicopters flying in the skies, saving precious time and lives. Our staff voted to fundraise for the charity for two years in a row, as they recognise how important the service they provide is.”

Raising £10,854 is a fantastic amount and I am very proud of all our staff for achieving this, especially in such difficult circumstances, with Covid and now the cost-of-living crisis. One of our values at Melin is ‘Make a difference’ and once again our staff have shown they can.
