Supporting The Community
The Association is committed to supporting the communities in the areas in which it operates through sponsorship and attendance at community events.
During the year, Association staff were delighted to be able to attend and support nine events including local shows, carnivals and fun days. We provided information and advice and free activities for the children.
Roofus, the Association’s mascot, attended the events and became a much-loved character.
Last year we gave over £4,400 in sponsorship to various local organisations and events.
Since 2009, the Association has also been proud to sponsor the Powys Business Awards which is a fabulous showcase of the work of local businesses. This year, the Association sponsored the Charity and Social Enterprise Award and ReKindle from Newtown were chosen as the worthy winners.
The Association also offers support to young tenants through the Chair’s Sponsorship Scheme. The Association was delighted to help five young people during the year by helping to fund character-forming events and to ensure children of our tenants have every opportunity to succeed.
The Association is pleased to support the communities in this way and will continue to build on this in future.
