Elly’s Flag Appeal gets Games Galore!!

Published

on

NINE-year-old Elly Neville, a Year 5 pupil at Pembroke Dock Community School and her Elly’s Ward 10 Flag Appeal went along on Monday 23 rd September to Puffin Ward (PACU) at Withybush Hospital, Haverfordwest for an "Amazing" presentation. Earlier this year we, at Elly’s Ward 10 Appeal, wrote to Hasbro Gaming asking for support towards our fundraising. Hasbro very kindly offered Elly to donate toys and games to our local children’s services and with support from Hywel Dda Health Charities it happened – Hasbro have donated 174 games to be distributed across all Hywel Dda Health Board sites.

Sandra Jones, Play Service Manager said: “As Play Service Manager within the Women and Children's Directorate, I would like to thank Elly's Ward 10 Flag Appeal and Hasbro Gaming for the donation of games and toys. Children and young people visiting or admitted to
the Puffin Unit at Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest, Cilgerran Ward at Glangwili Hospital in Carmarthen and Angharad Ward at Bronglais Hospital in Aberystwyth will benefit from such a very generous donation. The vast array of games and toys will also be shared with Speech and Language, Physiotherapists and many other Community staff within the Hywel Dda University Health Board. The donation will enable us to provide the extras that make a stay or visit to hospital a more positive patient experience and I would like to thank you once again for thinking of us.”

Elly said, "I am really happy that we have been able to help children. I love helping to raise money for Cancer Patients on Ward 10 but it is great to be able to help children who have to be in hospital when they are ill." Elly and her family are continuing to seek donations via their Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Ward10Flag and please give our Facebook page a like – just search – Ward 10 Flag.

Carers needed to start work immediately

Published

on

The council is urgently recruiting carers to help support older and vulnerable residents of Carmarthenshire as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

We are particularly appealing for people who have worked within the care sector previously who would consider returning to work during these unprecedented times.

If you have ever worked as a domiciliary care worker or in a residential care home, we are urging you to please get in touch.

Staff are needed throughout Carmarthenshire, you must be 18-years-old, can start immediately and able to work up to 16 hours a week.

Experience is desirable but not essential, so if you do not have any experience in the care industry, but want to help, then we can quickly provide the relevant training.

Executive Board Member for Health and Social Care Cllr Jane Tremlett said: “Now more than ever, people are needed to provide care and support to those who are vulnerable in our communities.

“If you have any experience or even no experience but this is a job you would like to do and are in a position to apply, I would urge you to please contact us.

“Working in domiciliary care is extremely rewarding; you really are making a difference to people’s lives, particularly during this uncertain time. So please help us and help your community too.”

The council offers good rates of pay and flexible hours. Full and part-time, permanent and temporary contracts are available.

We want to make the application process as easy as possible, so only the mandatory fields on the application form will need to be completed along with a brief statement about any care you have provided. If you have not provided care in a work setting you can instead state what you think would make you a good carer.

Applicants will be contacted by telephone following their application.
