PEMBROKESHIRE COLLEGE - "MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY" - WEDNESDAY 3rd JULY, 2013

We would very much like to say a "Big Thank You" to a team of twelve ladies from the Workforce Skills and Care and Childcare Department of Pembrokeshire College.  They volunteered to come and paint the Hall, Stairs and Landing at the Support Centre as part of the "Make A Difference Day"  which takes place annually and is undertaken by College Staff to help local Charities and Voluntary Organisations. The team of ladies were..... Lucy Kendall (Team Leader), Jennie Thomas, Lisa Mills, Beth Griffiths, Theresa Hannon, Michelle Groves, Jen Jayne, Sharon Tinnauche, Wendy Williams, Michaela Harper, Sara Martin and Denise Harris.  As volunteers they pay all their own costs to get to the chosen project (some came from as far as Ammanford) and no cost falls on the College.  It is all about working as a Team and providing a service for the community for the whole day.

We are very grateful for all the help and assistance given by Pembrokeshire College and their Volunteers for "Make  A Difference Day" and it has certainly made a big difference to our Support Centre.
