There was great excitement when SI Bridgend were awarded first prize for this year’s SI Wales South Regional Programme Action Award. The Award recognises the work undertaken by the Club on the project with Barnardos in the family centre at Parc Prison.
The certificate was presented to Club members by Welsh Government Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams AM. Club Programme Action Officer, Carys Brown, accepted the Award and explained that the project had evolved out of an initial reading project with children of those in Parc Prison. It had extended to the Literacy Competition and we were awaiting the results of this 2017 competition. Carys said that we were looking forward to extending our involvement with Barnardos and looking at ways we could support them in the Family Centre at Parc Prison.
First prize for PA Award for SI Bridgend. Congratulations to all involve
