We are delighted to announce that our Tydfil Training chosen charity for 2016 will be the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue based in Merthyr Tydfil. There will be numerous events taking place during the year by Learners & Staff, to raise valuable funds for this worthy charity.

 

CHARITY OF THE YEAR VISIT: In October 2015, the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team were grateful to receive a visit from Paul Gray and the Managers of Tydfil Training. Paul, CEO of Tydfil Training presented the Team with a cheque for £1,700 which was raised by the staff over the period of a year following various activities such as dress down days, fundraising walks and sponsorships. Central Beacons has supported Tydfil Training by providing team members to accompany the younger learners and Prince’s Trust Merthyr on walks to Pen-y-Fan and geocaching at Garwnant. Paul said that it gave him great pleasure to be associated with such a good cause and it was decided by the managers and staff to further support Central Beacons for the forthcoming year.20151008195500

As a token of our thanks, Paul was presented with an engraved plaque acknowledging Tydfil Training’s continued support of CBMRT. Once again the Team would like to say a big thank you to Paul and all the staff for their generous donation and support.
