If staff training is on the agenda within the next few months, it may be worth acting fast. There are few dates left for the rest of the year, and we’re quickly filling up for dates in the New Year.

We provide training across the Microsoft Office Suite and on software such as PowerBi and Power Automate.

Cancer Research Wales

Last week, we were extremely grateful to have Cancer Research Wales come into our office to present to our team on Bowel Cancer, the incredible work they do and how donations play a huge role in helping the charity.

We’re thrilled to have raised £500 for Cancer Research Wales through activities such as our annual Fantasy Football tournaments.

Thank you to all those who participated and continue participating year after year to raise money for our chosen charities.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Our team baked a fantastic selection of cakes, from chocolate cupcakes to banana bread to a team favourite, Malteasers tray bake. However, Software Developer Daniel Price’s lemon drizzle cake gathered quite the fuss.

We want to thank all those star bakers (who are all worthy of entering The Great British Bake-Off) and those who donated to the Coffee Morning.

We are happy to announce that we raised £180 for Macmillan Cancer Support from the event.
