Award from the High Sheriff of Dyfed
We received a prestigious community award from the High Sheriff of Dyfed, Professor Medwin Hughes, who is also Deputy Lord Lieutenant.
We were one of 20 community groups represented at a community awards night staged at the Halliwell Centre at Trinity College, University of Wales Trinity St David, in Carmarthen recently.
“It was a massive honour for the charity to be invited to the community awards night,” said Ann Dymock, Chief Officer of Age Cymru Sir Gar. “Trustees joined me in representing the charity and the award marked the role of the charity in the wider community of Carmarthenshire and particular praise was directed at our hard-working staff and volunteers.”
High Sheriff Mr Hughes said he was delighted to be able to recognise the contributions made by charities and community groups in the three counties of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion & Pembrokeshire.
He added: “Volunteers in Dyfed give of their time without asking for anything in return. They have a passion for helping others and do so much in helping build on our community spirit. They are inspirational.”
