We have helped sponsor the prestigious South Wales Argus Health and Care Awards.

The awards are designed to recognise and reward the outstanding work, care, innovation and services, across the health and care sectors.

This year the company sponsored the Volunteer of the Year award category which was won by volunteer Alan Hyatt.

Alan volunteers at the Hafan Deg Ward at County Hospital, Griffithstown, Pontypool where his wife was cared for before she died.

His work has been described as remarkable and courageous.  Alan fundraises and runs activities on the ward such as music groups, quizzes and word games. He shows a huge amount of kindness and thoughtfulness to the patients, often spending time on the ward during the week and also on weekends and during holidays.

WPD Distribution Manager Paul Llewellyn, who presented Alan with his award said: “Alan is a very worthy winner, his positive outlook enriches the lives of patients helping them improve their mental health.  Congratulations must also go to everyone who was shortlisted.”
