Antur Waunfawr is very proud to have been highly commended for the Outstanding Trustees Award at the Welsh Charity Awards hosted by the Welsh Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA Cymru).

The prestigious award ceremony was held at the National Museum Cardiff, on Friday 15 November, and celebrated the valuable work of charitable organisations in Wales.

The Welsh Charity Awards are a brand-new scheme from WCVA that recognise and celebrate the fantastic contribution charities, community groups, not-for-profits and volunteers make to Wales.
The judges whittled down 180 nominations from across the country to a shortlist of just 30 organisations and volunteers.

Antur Waunfawr’s board of trustees was nominated for its exceptional leadership in supporting the social enterprise to provide valuable work and training opportunities for individuals with learning disabilities in their communities.

Antur Waunfawr board chairman, Rhys Evans, who represented the board of trustees at the ceremony, said: “Finding out that we’ve been nominated for our work as Trustees was very exciting for all of us. We’ve always had a strong tradition at Antur Waunfawr of involving the community in our work, and our Trustees play a vital role. We’re very proud to have been highly commended for this award, and thank you for the nomination.”
