Written by Gavin on 9th May 2023
Alex Davies-Jones, the Member of Parliament for Pontypridd & Taff Ely, has launched a new award to recognise community groups in her constituency who go above and beyond to help others.
The new Community Group award aims to highlight the work community groups, which are often staffed by volunteers, do to help others in their local communities.
Nominations opened in March and a huge number of nominations were received throughout April and May.
Alex Davies-Jones MP said:
“Community groups and the volunteers that support them are an integral part of our local communities across Pontypridd and Taff Ely. They are the glue which hold our neighbourhoods together and they truly make a difference to the everyday lives of others.
“Whether it be a support group, a local grassroots sports team or a campaign group, we are very lucky to have so many people committed to helping to change lives for the better.”
“I’d like to thank the groups, and the people behind them, that have been nominated for all that they do. I strongly believe it is important to recognise, celebrate, and thank those people who go out of their way to make our communities better for others.”
If you know a community group that has made a contribution to helping the vulnerable, those in need, or other people in your local community, you can nominate them online to receive the recognition they deserve.
