Anti-Bullying Week in November was all hands on deck with educational sessions being delivered in Coleg Morgannwg and youth clubs – engaging with and educating over 100 young people in the process. The Wicid team has also been asked to promote and run the Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf’s Battle of the Bands 2014, which will be taking place in the first few months of the new year.
