Community praised for generous donation
Ceri Morgan, Operations Manager, accepts a generous donation from the people of Natyglo and Blaina
There’s a new kid in town, ready to help CACBG drive forward it’s vision for the future of advice services. And what better way to introduce Ceri Morgan, our new Operations Manager, than a visit to one of our local communities to pick up a generous donation.
Ceri joined Nantyglo and Blaina Town Council at their Borough in Bloom presentation to accept a cheque for £1,160.
The council had been holding the money raised for CACBG as part of the Mayor’s nominated charity fund, more than 18 months ago.
Councillor Ken Jones held the Mayor’s position when the pandemic hit and has served two terms in office. Councillor Jones joined the current Mayor Councillor Des Hillman to celebrate the winning gardens and give Ceri a cheque of £1,160.
Thanking the community of Nantyglo and Blaina for their generosity, Ceri said: “We were inundated with people needing our services at CACBG both before and during the pandemic and during the pandemic. And as we are returning to normality we will continue to support large numbers of people as the cost of living impacts on our local communities. Funding has become very difficult to secure so all donations are appreciated. They go towards helping deliver services across Nantyglo and Blaina. We thank Councillor Ken Jones for nominating us as a chosen charity. And we are grateful to the Town Council and members of the local community for their support in raising and donating money during a very challenging period.“
Councillor Jones recognised the value that our advice brings to the community that he represents.
“In my opinion does such a wonderful job in the area helping with all manner of problems,” he said. “When problems get too heavy for people, they pick up the phone and get advice and guidance. The problem is lifted off their shoulders. It is an important organisation and is needed even more as we see Covid measures lifted and the full impact is seen.”
