Here at CPS Homes, we love getting involved with local events across the Cardiff community. We've previously sponsored local netball teams and charity events, and more recently we've taken an active role in events which are raising money for some great causes.
We're supporting James Donne & Matthew Lewis' Cardiff to Paris bike ride. Due to set off on 3rd June from BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park, the boys are riding 516km (320 miles) over a four-day period, all in aid of Cardiff Blues' Owen Williams who suffered a life-altering injury while playing rugby last year.
Parents of Marlborough Primary School, Penylan, pupils pitted their wits against each other in the school's annual pub quiz recently – battling for pride and prizes donated by CPS Homes. The event, in aid of the school's PTA fund, who are currently raising money for improvement to the playground facilities, raised over £300.
Cardiff Marrow, the UK's biggest bone marrow register, held their Medical School Halfway Ball in order to fundraise for the cause. "The aim is to raise the vital funds and awareness for the need for bone marrow donors and increase the numbers registered, allowing more matches to be found for terminally ill patients", explained Lilly of Cardiff Marrow. As proud sponsors of Cardiff Blues, we donated a signed shirt to the charity’s raffle, which was given away on the night of the ball.
"It's great to see the enthusiasm and tenacity amongst this group of young Cardiff students, and we're only too happy to help such worthwhile causes", said Rhys Owen, Lettings Manager at our Woodville Road, Cathays branch.
