We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who attended this week’s coffee morning held to raise money for Ukraine. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters we have raised over £200 so far, and this will be donated to the British Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian appeal. If anyone would like to donate directly to them, the link is:
If you shop on Amazon/Amazon Smile you can select a charity to receive a small donation when you purchase items. It would be great if you could choose Caerphilly People First as your designated charity – it only takes a few minutes and will all add up and make a difference. Thank you.
We would like to Thank Anne Green and Kevin Viney from the Bargoed Educational Settlement Committee for their kind donation to Caerphilly People. The donation will be used to carry out learning disability awareness training in various schools in the Bargoed area.
Members and staff recently attended a Pan Gwent networking event at Able Radio, Cwmbran. People First groups attending talked about future events, and members exchanged ideas about possible funding and talked about which areas we need to focus on. The groups also discussed the importance of self advocacy.
On Thursday 13th June 2019 Caerphilly People First hosted a cupcake day to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who baked or donated cakes, and also thanks to everyone who bought cakes on the day. Thanks to the great efforts of everyone we raised £92.10 in total.
