National Eisteddfod Sponsorship
Mid-Wales Housing Association was proud to be a sponsor of the Children’s Community Choir at the National Eisteddfod held in Meifod in August 2015.
The Children’s Community Choir was made up of local school children who performed on stage during the National Eisteddfod week.
Shane Perkins, Mid-Wales Housing Association’s Chief Executive said: “We are delighted to have sponsored the National Eisteddfod, which is an amazing showcase for the enormous talent that exists in Wales. Mid-Wales Housing Association is proud to have developed affordable housing throughout the communities of Mid-Wales and therefore, it is very appropriate that we supported the community choir”.
Elfed Roberts, the Eisteddfod’s Chief Executive said: “The community project is an integral part of the Eisteddfod’s work, providing opportunities for children and people of all ages to learn new skills and to gain new experiences locally within their own communities. This support from Mid-Wales Housing has enabled us to do this with 150 youngsters from across the catchment area, who have been busily preparing for the Eisteddfod for many weeks.”
The Association was also pleased to have a stand at the Eisteddfod in partnership with Community Housing Cymru and Care & Repair Cymru, and enjoyed meeting the many visitors to the Eisteddfod, especially those who wished to know more about its work.
