RWE supports local charity Tŷ Hafan

Staff at RWE Generation UK’s Aberthaw Power Station in South Wales recently raised £5,255 for local hospice Tŷ Hafan.

Firstly, engineers Richard Lloyd, Andy Jones, Nigel Williams and Steve Preston participated in a fund raising bike ride from Greenwich to the Eiffel Tower, which they completed in under 24 hours. Then in April, Commercial Operations Manager Mark Picton took part in the London Marathon, raising over £2,000 with £4£ matching from the company.

Aberthaw offered further support by sponsoring the main stage at the hospice’s ‘Pirate Fun Day’ on Saturday 4th July.

Station Manager, Richard Little said, “Supporting the local community is always high on our list of priorities at Aberthaw Power Station and throughout RWE Generation UK. Congratulations and thank you to all involved in the recent activities to support Tŷ Hafan. We will continue to back the charity and their outstanding provision for young families in difficult situations.”

Tŷ Hafan looks after life-limited children while providing much-needed support to their families. The charity has to raise £3.7 million per year in order to offer its vital free services to local Welsh families. RWE Generation UK are proud to contribute to their fund raising efforts.
