The team from Calan DVS Amman Valley have supported their local community by taking part in the Ammanford Big Day Out.
This event took place on Saturday 16th July, organised by Ammanford Rotary Club along with Ammanford Enterprise Partnership & Carmarthenshire County Council. It is an annual event run in Ammanford packed with activities, stalls and general promotion of the local community.
The local Calan DVS staff decided to take a stall to raise awareness of the work we do and to raise the profile of the organisation within the local community. Despite the weather, the event was a great success! They handed out freebies (wrist bands, pens, balloons, sweets, etc) and were visited by many men, women and children who discussed Calan’s work with them, and took away information leaflets.
Current service users came along to show their support, and the stall was also visited by some past service users. It was really rewarding to see how far they’ve come since receiving support from the charity. They also gave information for potential new referrals who may require our services in the near future.
