A GROUP of brave fundraisers have bared all to raise over £3,000 for two charities.

The Amman Valley Full Monty was held at Brynamman Cinema and Public Hall on January 12 which saw a group of men and women stripping off to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care and Prostate Cancer UK.

Each of the brave ladies and gentlemen who took part in the Full Monty finale wanted to do something different to raise awareness of the disease.

Organiser Debbie Elias told The Guardian: “It couldn’t have gone better.

“The audience were electric. They really lifted the performance throughout the whole show.

“From the time the curtain went up to the time it went down, everyone was dancing and clapping which really encouraged all the performers involved in the show.

“We are still waiting for a few more donations but we have raised over £3,000 which we’re really pleased about.

The Full Monty finale may have been the main event on the night, but the fundraiser saw a variety of different types of entertainment taking to the stage.

Drag artist Minnie Cooper, Cor Persain Ladies Choir, Ammanford Community Theatre, Swansea Dance Twerk Team and Saron Ladies Tap Dancing Team all performed on the night.

Debbie added: “I would like to thank Brynamman Cinema for allowing us to use the venue free of charge and for being so helpful and supportive.

“Nothing was too much trouble, and everyone gave up their time for free.

“It was a brilliant night, and everyone enjoyed.

“A great community event raising money for two worthwhile charities.”

Following the success of the event, Debbie has confirmed that another fundraiser is on the horizon but this time in aid of Parkinson’s and MS.

“The next fundraiser will be an adult pantomime,” added Debbie.

“It will be held sometime in January next year to help the January blues.”
