Donna Turner-Kot, Chief Executive said, “As a proud patron of PRIME Cymru (*), I am delighted that my company sponsored the inaugural PRIME Cymru Awards. One of the reasons why n-ergy sponsored the 2015 PRIME Cymru Awards is that I believe n-ergy and Prime Cymru have a shared aim to help people in the Principality to gain new skills to support their journey back into employment, whether it’s people with convictions or aged 50 and over”.
