Conwy Kids Matter

At CEW we always take the chance to celebrate what is great about Welsh construction. One of the things that never ceases to amaze us is how much time the people in our industry give to other causes, despite working so hard themselves to deliver great projects to improve the built environment for Wales.

At CEW we always take the chance to celebrate what is great about Welsh construction. One of the things that never ceases to amaze us is how much time the people in our industry give to other causes, despite working so hard themselves to deliver great projects to improve the built environment for Wales. 

One of the groups that benefited last year was Conwy Kids Matter – the chosen charity supported by the CEW Awards in 2016. It is a small group of volunteers who work to raise awareness and funds for children and young people and families in need in Conwy. The aim is to provide them with life enhancing experiences and opportunities that they wouldn’t otherwise have. Sometimes, when we see all of the appeals for children elsewhere in the world, we forget that there are disadvantaged children and families living on our doorstep too!  The members of the group are volunteers whose day jobs involve supporting families in need and who work in partnership with social services. 

The fundraising at the 2016 CEW Awards enabled around 130 people to go to a Christmas pantomime this year.  They all had an amazing time and its down to your kind donations that this was made possible. Here are a few of the messages received from these grateful families are listed below.

“…just wanted to say a massive, massive thank you, we all had a fantastic time” quote from a mum of six children. 

“…we would just like to say a huge thank you for giving us tickets to the pantomime, myself and my children have never been before and we had so much fun” message received from family of four 

“Thank you to Conwy Kids Matter great organisation everything went like clockwork we had a great day” 

The team at the charity wanted to make sure that everyone within the CEW family knew the difference made by your donations. Thank you.
