Talented siblings to host charity concert in Myddfai
12:03pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in What's On
LIVING in the heart of Carmarthenshire’s Towy Valley are a family of four siblings, each sharing a common interest: an all-embracing passion for music.
Known collectively as The Meadows, Melody, Fantasia, Harvey and Titania – have been touring the area over the summer months, performing at charity concerts all in aid of Velindre Cancer Centre.
“The Llangathen event was a great success and went down very well,” said the talented youngsters’ dad James Meadows.
“It was supported by Llandeilo's Mayor and was very well attended by people from the surrounding area who, to our surprise, packed-out the hall.
“The local communities for the first two concerts contributed delicious home-made cakes and the family-friendly evenings of entertainment went down a storm, so far raising £1462.01,” he added.
The siblings have a personal reason to raise money for the centre, their grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer which unfortunately was found to have moved onto her brain.
Locally, whole-of-brain radiotherapy or surgery was the treatment primarily on offer for brain tumour patients, alongside chemotherapy.
However, having been informed by a friend of the groundbreaking work being carried out at the Velindre Cancer Centre, she decided to transfer there for a short course of Radiosurgery.
Their grandmother has now been transformed and thoroughly enjoying life once more.
Myddfai will be the last of the fundraising concerts which
The third concert is planned for Myddfai Community Centre on Friday, October 11 at 7pm.
Tickets are priced £8 for adults and £5 for under 18s and are available from Myddfai community hall and visitor centre, Llandovery post office and Morgan’s news and post office, Llangadog.
This event will be supported by the town-crier and the chair of Myddfai.
