On the 23rd May GDAS is holding a set of Mental Health Awareness Events spread across a number of our bases in Gwent.
On Thursday 19th October, representatives from the GDAS Recovery Hub in Newport attended the Health and Care awards 2017 at Chracecourse course.
This was a black tie event and from the Imagine Foundation pot we paid for suit hire for the volunteers. Without this, our volunteers would not have been able to attend.
The Hub was nominated as finalists in the ‘together we achieve’ category and we won!
This event is the first of many run by our local newspaper who GDAS and The Hub have a brilliant working relationship with, The South Wales Argus.
We were very humbled to win in such good company such as Vaughan Gething and Dr Hilary Jones of Good Morning Britain television fame.
As everyone can see, the Hub goes from strength to strength and this is owing to the very hard work and dedication of the Hub Volunteers.
Attached are some photos from last night’s awards so everyone can share in the wonderful achievements.
