Dr Rhodri Llwyd Morgan, Chair of Mudiad Meithrin’s Board of Directors, said,

“The contribution of volunteers is one of Mudiad Meithrin’s great strengths, and this is true on a national level as well as underpinning our grassroots provision. As an organisation, we are fortunate that we are able to attract individuals willing to give of their time and expertise. It gives me great pleasure to welcome Elin, Gwenno, Savanna, Colin and Huw to serve as members of our Board of Directors, and I’m sure that we will benefit greatly from their various talents.”
