and Cookiemate a recycled camping stove.
Handmade in Wales.
We are a new and unique social firm producing a range of wax based products such as our beautiful candles. Using recycled materials when ever possible, we manufacture super fire lighters and portable cookers.
We began life in 1999 as Beacons Candles, a local authority day care service for people with learning difficulties and disabilities run by Powys County Council. It was following an enquiry about employment opportunities from one of the service users that the idea of becoming an independent business was formed. Finally, after an enormous amount of will, effort and belief, Powys County Council, with the support of Social Firms Wales, externalised the day care service and in June 2009 Beacons Creative Wales Limited was born.
The underlying mission of our social enterprise is to provide employment and training opportunities in a safe and caring environment.
Judges comments from the 2011 awards ceremony
This is always one of the hardest categories to judge as it brings into stark focus the passion and commitment that certain individuals are prepared to give to help others less fortunate than themselves.
Beacons Creative is an enterprise that provides disadvantaged people with the opportunity to come together and contribute their skills into running a thriving business.
The Judges were particularly drawn to the organisations unique range of handmade candles, which are of the highest quality and in great demand nationwide through many retail outlets and craft fairs.
They also noted that Beacon had diversified into running a popular and successful café in Brecon and currently in the process of opening a retail wholefood store in the same town.
The Judges would like to mention that it was a great pleasure to be briefly amongst so many special people who were clearly enjoying the happy atmosphere of the Beacon workshops.
