Pam Hibbert OBE

Chair of Trustees

I moved to the Builth area nearly three years ago and have been made welcome by everyone I have met. I wanted to use my skills and experience to give back in some way so was delighted to have the opportunity to become a Trustee and now Chair of BWCS. As a small charity, BWCS provides a wide range of services essential to residents in a rural area, and they do this on very minimal resources. It is a privilege to be part of an organisation supporting local people and I hope to continue to help BWCS thrive and grow. 


Ian Phillips

Trustee, Treasurer

I initially joined BWCS as a Volunteer Driver. It's amazing how many interesting stories you hear when transporting people, especially of the 'good old days'. There is a feeling that you are being useful and giving something back to the community.

I joined the Board of Trustees as Treasurer in 2011 and have become more involved 'behind the scenes'. There is the usual perennial struggle between funding and providing a service. There is always a shortfall to make up and we rely totally on grants, donations & fundraising events and fortunately now, we have the proceeds of the Charity Shop to help.


Hugh Garner


After thirty five years in retail business I hoped my experience would be useful to Community Support. I have been a member of the Board of Trustees for 8 years.


Judy Davies


I joined BWCS as a driver in 2007 then became a member of the Board of Trustees. I am glad I became involved, I love driving and meeting lovely people and feel really appreciated by the passengers.


Eironwy Davies


I have lived in Builth for many years and after working with various local organisations (including at the BWCS premises), I retired and joined the BWCS Board of Trustees in 2018.


Yvette Bridgeman


I am a local girl, and after teaching in Llanelwedd Church in Wales school for 30 years I felt I needed something to occupy my time. I saw volunteering with BWCS as an opportunity to be useful in a positive way in the local community. I was Chair of the organisation for 8 years and remain a member of the Board of Trustees.


David Sutherland


I retired from working for Bridgend Council and moved to Builth from Newport as my parents lived in Llangynidr. My Mum used the Brecon dial a ride and the volunteer driver service and so after she passed away I thought Iā€™d put my new found time to good use and become involved in BWCS to ensure people had an opportunity to benefit from a service as she did.
