Masons: Supporting our Community in the Vale of Glamorgan

Posted on: Thu Oct 1

Did you know that here at Masons Self Storage, we are a family business who have been in the storage & removals industry for 115 years? We’re always looking for ways to get involved in our local community, from supporting Armed Forces charity, Woody’s Lodge to sponsoring events such as Friends of Belle Vue’s Music in the Park and the Penarth Christmas Festival to a huge fundraising effort for Cleft Lip and Palate Association last year. We absolutely love supporting and getting involved with our local community as many ways as we can. 

Unfortunately, we know that this year hasn’t quite been the same, with lots of events being postponed or cancelled this year but all through COVID-19, we couldn’t be prouder of our local community. From local groups coming together, like Helping Hands Penarth, to support our vulnerable to the highlight of the week on a Thursday evening: all coming together on our doorsteps to clap for our keyworkers! Plus, don’t get us started on all of the rainbows and colourful artwork in the windows! 

There’s no doubt that 2020 has been a difficult year for us all, but we are so inspired and in awe of our local community. We know that, eventually, when ‘normality’ starts to be restored, fundraising and events to support our community will start to become a regular occurrence again. 

How can you get involved in the Vale?

Although this year has been a year like no other, and is not looking at improving anytime soon, there are still plenty of ways to get involved and to support our local community. Our friends at Woody’s Lodge are always on the look-out for volunteers, from supporting their events to helping with signposting and form-filling support for their veterans, if you have some free time, why not see how you can get involved

If sports are more your thing, Barry Town Pan Disability Football Team are one of the best pan-disability teams in South Wales and are always looking out for additional help! So, even if you might not be able to get physically involved right now, why not touch base to see if there is anything you can help them with until we get back to normal? Call Neil on 07827 334818 or email [email protected]!

There are so many volunteering opportunities to get involved here in the Vale, a great place to start is with the Glamorgan Voluntary Services (GVS). They help to improve the quality of our community by supporting volunteers and connecting volunteers with groups and volunteering opportunities. Find out more here
