Ty Olwen to benefit from Mayor’s Charity

The new Mayor of Neath Port Talbot, Councillor Janice Dudley, has announced her official charities for the year and spoken about why they are close to her heart. Councillor Dudley will use her term in office to raise money for the Salvation Army and Tŷ Olwen.

Councillor Dudley said:

“It is a great honour to be made Mayor of Neath Port Talbot. For me, some of the highlights of the year will be the privilege of meeting people and organisations that support our communities to find out about the invaluable work they do, and the chance to raise awareness of and money for important charities.

“There are so many worthwhile charities, that I had to think long and hard about which ones to support.

“2017 marks the twentieth year since my dear husband passed away. I chose to support Tŷ Olwen in his memory and as a way of thanking them for the wonderful care and support he received.

Mrs Helen Murray MBE, Chairman of the Tŷ Olwen Trust said:

“Everyone at Tŷ Olwen is delighted that we are one of the Mayor’s chosen charities this year. We are a local charity where at least 98p in every pound donated goes to the care of our patients and to allow them to have the best possible support we can offer. Any money raised by the Mayor’s Charity will make a huge difference to so many people.”

The Mayor carries out hundreds of civic duties during the year, most of which are within Neath, Port Talbot, Pontardawe and the Valleys. They also chair meetings of the full Council and attend annual events such as the opening of Neath Fair, Remembrance Day events and the Civic Church Service.
