Mi-space celebrates St David’s Day at Liberty Stadium
Mi-space celebrated St David’s Day in style with a special breakfast event at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea, complete with a local legend as guest speaker.
The event brought together staff, local residents, councillors and partners to mark the day as well as to learn more about Mi-space, which is working in communities across Wales on a series of home improvement projects benefiting thousands of families.
Despite the snowy conditions, visitors turned out in support of the breakfast, compered by Welsh presenter, singer and actor Rhydian Phillips, and to hear from guest speaker, Welsh producer, actor and writer Jonny Owen.
Jonny gave a fascinating and insightful talk on the making of his film Don’t Take Me Home, the incredible true story of the Welsh football team’s journey to success at the 2016 European Championships, a truly fitting story about Wales and Welsh spirit on St David’s Day.
As part of the event, Mi-space supported local hospice Ty Olwen, a palliative care unit based at Morriston Hospital, and raised a total of £190 through a silent auction and other donations. The Vice Chairman of Ty Olwen Trust, Paul Murray, presented the auction item to one lucky bidder.
Mi-space, part of the Midas Group, is currently working alongside Swansea Council to maintain properties in the area to the Welsh House Quality Standard (WHQS), completing maintenance works and upgrades to around 1,000 properties per year. It’s also working with other local authority and housing association clients in Wales, including Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, Newport City Homes and Tai Tarian.
As part of Mi-space and the Midas Group’s commitment to the communities it works in and to delivering industry-leading customer service, Mi-space also dedicates time and efforts to local community projects.
AJ Eaton, Divisional Director for Mi-space, said: “We were so pleased to host such a great event to celebrate St David’s Day as well as some of the great work Mi-space has completed in the area.
“We were so proud to welcome Jonny Owen to our breakfast and hear all about his work and his experiences as well. It was a real pleasure to meet him.”
