A former chairman of the Newtown mental health charity Ponthafren Association has raised £2,045 by using for donation to the charity instead of presents on his 70th birthday.

Tim Halford made the request to friends and family and he he said he was overwhelmed by the generosity.

Association Manager, Nicky Morris, said: “We are very grateful to Tim for recognising the value of our project. This amount will make such a significant difference too many people’s lives and will be life changing for many. What a lasting legacy from Tim’s birthday.”
Ponthafren provides a unique blend of services to address the mental health needs of its members and the citizens of Montgomeryshire in north Powys.

The Association has developed two main centres in Montgomeryshire, at Newtown and Welshpool, with a satellite provision in Llanidloes in the form of a group which meets weekly on a Thursday.

The centres provide a community facility that gives people experiencing mental health difficulties opportunities to find: a ‘safe place’; peer support, crisis support; and access to a wide range of learning and work related opportunities.
