DYFED High Sheriff David Pryse Lloyd and his merry volunteers are gathering promises of resources, manpower and money from businesses and individuals throughout Pembrokeshire.
They want to help community groups to tackle projects needing practical things like building materials, machinery, people and skills.
Perhaps your local youth centre needs a face lift – the High Sheriff could find painting materials and people to help. Or your village hall may need an access ramp for disabled visitors – the High Sheriff will look for a builder and building materials.
Times are tough so businesses and people can’t give as much money as they would like for community projects but it’s surprising how much they are prepared to help with materials & time.
Ideally, Go M.A.D. projects will be tackled during September 2010, but there may be exceptions.

The Dyfed High Sheriff’s henchmen and women could be forgiven for wishing it was 400 years ago, when all they would have done was collect taxes and be mean to serfs! Setting up the Go M.A.D. – Go Make A Difference – month in September is proving to be a tougher task.
