Team Tai Calon

Members of staff have also been busy raising money for charity. Two colleagues have also been recognised by Gwent Police for their roles in a film about the dangers of synthetic drugs

Each year staff vote for a charity which they support through Dress Down Days and other events. In 2013 it was the Blaenau Gwent Domestic Abuse Service for which they raised £700.

This year they are supporting Help for Heroes and Ty Hafan Hospice.

In April, staff dressed up as characters from Alice In Wonderland to host a tidy tea break. They raised nearly £179 for Keep Wales Tidy.

Assistant Neighbourhood Manager, Kelly Burgess, and Bricklayer, Andrew Perkins, spent the St David’s Day weekend cycling from North to South Wales. They and other riders from the housing sector were raising money for mother of two, Nikki Thomas, who had a rare form of cancer.

Sadly Nikki lost her fight for life, however her family said all the “kind words, actions and the love sent both inspired and boosted her.”

Darrell Dewar and Tracey Meyrick from Neighbourhoods have been presented with “Working in Partnership” awards by the Gwent Police and Crime Commissioner, Ian Johnston.

The well-deserved commendation was for their dedication to “The Good Drug Dealer” film project, which is about the dangers of drugs like meow meow. They and our other partners in the film, which we sponsored, received certificates at the Gwent Police Awards Ceremony in Newport.
