Goodbye to Elys Rees, our Caffi Caredig Officer

The Parish Trust would like to say goodbye to Elys Rees, our Caffi Caredig Officer, who leaves us after successfully completing his Apprenticeship in Food and Hygiene with us as part of the Profectus Programme.

Elys embarked upon a steep learning curve as he had to plan the opening and running of the Caffi Caredig, having had no prior experience of working in the role. A year later, he has successfully completed his Level Three Apprenticeship and even secured a Level 5 rating for the Caffi Caredig from Environmental Health, which is an amazing achievement.

The Parish Trust is grateful to those who have supported the Profectus Programme to enhance the training of our apprentices. Specifically related to Elys’ training, we’re grateful to Cadwaladers Ice Cream who supported a secondment for Elys to join their team in Cardiff Bay for a month to learn valuable skills in preparing food and drinks as well as learning the processes of running a successful food business.

Elys now moves to join the Risca COVID-19 Volunteers to work in a similar role as the work of their charity progresses from strength to strength. RCV are great friends of The Parish Trust, who often support us with our CARE Project work.

Rev. Dean, Chair of Trustees, said of Elys’ departure,

We are of course sad to see Elys leave the charity after his year’s apprenticeship with us. However, this is a natural ending for Elys, as the Profectus Programme is a year’s commitment to contributing towards the work of The Parish Trust whilst learning a particular skill. Elys has both achieved that skill, and has indeed contributed to the charity. We wish him well in the next chapter of his career and are grateful for all that he has brought to the charity. May God bless you, Elys, as you embark on the next stage of your journey!

Please note that in order to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and to enjoy the Easter Holidays, The Parish Trust will be closed from Thursday 28th March 2024 and will reopen on Monday 8th April 2024. We wish all our stakeholders and beneficiaries a Happy Easter.
