Powys Housing Team
|15th June 2018|
Housing service staff from Powys County Council will be running in the Swansea Half Marathon later this month to raise fund for Dementia UK.
The nine-strong team will be pounding the streets of the city on Sunday 24th June for the good cause after being inspired by the cause at their annual conference.
Team organiser Julie Harding said: "As a service we wanted to form a team to not only run the race but to raise money for a good cause. At our staff conference in 2017 we had a presentation from Dementia Matters in Powys which was inspiring.
"We agreed as a team that we'd look to raise funds to assist third sector organisations work in the community providing support for people who have a dementia diagnosis and their carers. The work of such organisations will be critical in Powys in enabling people to "Live Well".
The team is urging colleague to support their efforts and help raise money for the cause. You can sponsor the team by clicking on this link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/powyshousingteam "
The team members are:
