CEF Birthday Party

CEF (City Electrical Factors) celebrated 25 years of business in Powys by holding a fun birthday party for its customers at the Greenhous Ford Transit Centre in Newtown. CEF, based on the Mochdre Industrial Estate, are proud to have grown their business in the region and invited customers to a special event which featured lots of party food, a hog roast courtesy of award winning butcher Rikki Lloyd, a large 25th anniversary cake, a massive Scalextric circuit, a casino and a raffle with a first prize of over £300 worth of electrical goods for the visitors to enjoy.

Paul Martin, Group Manager of CEF, explained the reasons behind the event, saying: “We like to get involved in our local communities wherever CEF branches are operating. This is an opportunity for us to say thank you to our customers for their patronage of our company over the past 25 years. We also invited the local fire brigade and two charities that we selected for our support this year: Prostate Cymru and the Heulwen Trust. Both play an important role in our community with reference to health issues and support for disadvantaged children and adults respectively. Our thanks go to Tony Mellish and his staff for accommodating us in this fabulous venue at Greenhous Ford. We have been made to feel very welcome.”

Many children attended the event with their parents adding a family feel to the evening. David Corfield is the Chairman of the Heulwen Trust from Welshpool. He attended along with his wife Rozanne who is the vice-Chair. Rozanne gave details of the workings of the Trust: “We are a charity organisation whose aim is to bring enjoyment and pleasure to disabled children and adults. We do this by offering exciting scenic canal boat trips through some of the most beautiful Welsh countryside.

“We have two canal boats which are specially adapted to carry disabled children on board. They are wheelchair friendly and run mostly by volunteers. However, we also have groups of older people with disabilities, for example MS or blindness, who come on board for trips with their families. We also offer private hire through our website.”

Dai John, Head of Awareness for Prostate Cymru, was delighted to be given the opportunity to speak to many men at the event about the importance of men’s health and early diagnosis of prostate cancer, which is the most common cancer in men in Wales and the second most common cause of cancer deaths in UK men after lung cancer. Prostate Cymru’s current campaign called #SaveTheMalesInWales aims to raise awareness of prostate issues such as benign prostate disease and prostate cancer in men in Wales and encourage men to be more proactive regarding discussion of their prostate health when they visit their doctor.
