Newport have got lots of fantastic activities lined up for Community Week and have decided to support two charities. They will be fundraising for St David’s Foundation, who run a local hospice, and for Torfaen Opportunity Group who work locally with children with disabilities.
They’re an adventurous lot in Wales it seems, with many of their planned activities taking place around bridges or water! Claire Hockey, Customer Services and Alex Holland, Stockroom, are both doing an abseil from Newport Transporter Bridge on 26 March.
In May members of the Customer Services Department will be getting sponsorship to walk over the Severn Bridge from Wales to England and back again.
In June a team will compete in a Dragon Boat Race from Monmouth on the River Wye. Scenic, energetic and all for a good cause – go Newport!
