Egypt Centre Volunteer Awarded

A huge congratulations to Owain Brooks, a 15 year-old volunteer from the Egypt Centre in Swansea, for achieving the West Glamorgan High Sheriff's Award in the category of young people voluntarily helping their local community.

Owain has been volunteering at the Egypt Centre since October 2011 and has recently achieved over 100 volunteering hours. We're very proud of our young volunteers — without them it would be very difficult to achieve the level of service we at the Egypt Centre offer the general public."

The ceremony, held at the Old Town Hall in Neath, saw over 20 awards presented to both individuals and groups for their contribution to the community.
