TWO Amman Valley fundraisers are celebrating following the success of their charity band night.
Harriet Webb from Tycroes and Lisa Chan from Glanaman organised the event, held at Tycroes rugby club, to raise money for the pair’s upcoming Mount Kilimanjaro climb in aid of the Golau Cancer Foundation.
“The evening was a great success,” said Harriet.
“We would like to thank the bands who performed on the night – Son of One Eye and P’tchaeow – for their amazing sets. “Everyone who came commented on how good they were.”
The pair would like to thank Manford House Chinese Takeaway, Glanaman; Harmony, Ammanford; Treats, Ammanford and Tycroes rugby club for being official ticket outlets, 110 tickets were snapped up with many more sold on the night.
A total of £682.03 was raised of which £123 came from raffle ticket sales, with prizes donated by Manford House; Felin Fach Griffin, Brecon; Harmony; and New Age Photography, Ystradgynlais.
“Myself and Lisa would like to give a massive thank you to everyone who came and made the whole evening a success,” said Harriet.
“We are also very grateful to Tycroes rugby club for hosting the event.”
The event boosted the pair’s total money raised to £3,380 – well on their way to the £10,000 target.
The next charity event will be a Halloween walk on Thursday, October 31 along Swansea’s waterfront before moving onto Wind Street. Entry will be £5 with a prize for the best fancy dress.
Following this Harriet and Lisa are busy planning a Christmas shopping trip to Cribbs Causeway on Saturday, November 23, dropping off in Ammanford on the Saturday evening.
