Some of our colleagues based at Ty Coch, Cwmbran, won a company safety competition, they have donated £500 of their prize money to Prostate Cymru.

Team manager Andrew Cox, explained: “Every year WPD runs a safety competition for staff which involves operational teams having to complete a calendar year without an accident or incident.

“This year my team was a winner, which I am really pleased about because the safety of our staff and customers is our priority, and this competition supports WPD’s commitment to avoiding accidents.

“My team was accident free for the whole of 2016, so when one of our colleagues who had received help from the prostate charity a few years ago suggested we donate our winnings to them, we all thought it was a great idea and a very worthy cause.” 

Prostate Cymru is a mainly voluntary group dedicated to fighting Prostate Cancer and raising awareness in Wales.
