RECOGNISING THE SUCCESS OF DISABILITY CAN DO'S VOLUNTEER

Wednesday 23 July 2014

 

Congratulations are in order for Disability Can Do volunteer Rhys Nute, 22, who has been recognised by Caerphilly County Borough Council in their annual Voluntary Sector Awards. Rhys has been involved with the organisation for over 3 years and has contributed over 900 hours to the advocacy service.  Rhys was nominated for Inspirational Volunteer of the Year by the staff team and has surpassed many worthy candidates to take home the award. during the ceremony hosted at Ty Penallta.

During the award ceremony Cllr. Gerald Jones described Rhys’ contribution to the organisation as truly inspirational and later thanked him for his work in delivering support to residents across the borough. Receiving his award from Caerphilly Mayor David Carter, Rhys was applauded by friends, staff and trustees of Disability Can Do along with many other delegates from the voluntary sector. Rhys has now gone on to find full time employment in the field of web design and will use his experience gained at the organisation to kick-start his career!

Both the Staff and Trustee board would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Rhys and thank all of the volunteer team for their dedication in improving the quality of life of disabled people across the borough. Without your help our ability to deliver our much needed services would be considerably reduced.

Congratulations again Rhys!
