We’re excited to officially announce that we will be supporting Llamau again this year and have chosen them as our 2018 Charity Partner! This charity is close to our hearts following our attendance at last years ‘Sleep Out’ when we raised a massive £1,400.
Llamau is the leading Homelessness Charity for the most vulnerable Young People and Women in Wales. An established charity with head offices in Cardiff but projects across Wales, Llamau has been working for over 30 years to offer support, help, accommodation and housing advice to homeless and vulnerable young people and women in Wales.
As a local contractor, there’s much we can offer Llamau and it’s service users, from apprenticeship opportunities, to our team’s enthusiasm for fundraising. Keep an eye out for regular LinkedIn
updates documenting our fundraising efforts throughout the year.

Three Steps Forward
During 2014 we were involved with local charity ‘Three Steps Forward’ and the tenacious spirit of young parents Leigh Hemms and Kelsey Jenkins as they tirelessly raised money to fund treatment for their daughter, Ayla-Mae Hemms.
At just eight months old, Ayla-Mae was diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and profound deafness.
The most severe form of cerebral palsy, spastic quadriplegia is caused by extensive brain damage and severely affects motor function - presenting a number of physical and learning difficulties to those with the condition.
Leigh and Kelsey still have a long way to go but you can help them get there by visiting their fund raising page at:
