THIS summer a Betws fuel firm celebrated the success of its fifth Super Fun Saturday which raised £10,000 for six charities.

Heating company Sustainable Fuel Solutions - formerly Solid Fuel Servies - (SFS) once again teamed up with Carmarthenshire Construction Training Association Ltd (CCTAL), Cyfle Building Skills and TRJ building contractors to bring the family fun day to Ammanford park.

Revellers relaxed on the green and watched the cricket match with the youngsters enjoying the games at the stalls and inflatable rides plus hog roast. The evening included live musical entertainment plus auction.

Last year 34 volunteers completed the Welsh Three Peak Challenge in aid of six local charities, and this year organisers decided to grow the event again.

A charity coastal walk was held on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22, plus a charity bike ride on the day of the Super Fun Saturday.

Lesley Garland of SFS said she was pleased with another successful event and thanked the public for turning out and showing their support.

“We are in our fifth year now and people still turn out and support the event, which is fantastic,” she said.

“With the addition of the bike ride and the coastal walks – a 50 mile and 26 mile route – we were able to raise another great amount this year.”

Speaking about why they chose to begin fundraising for the community Lesley said, “We started the events because we wanted to give something back to the community. We were surprised with the huge response, so we kept going and here we are in our fifth year.

“Every year we change the charities that benefit from the funds raised so that everyone gets a piece.”

This year the money has been shared between Baby Zion from Tycroes, Prostate Cancer, Motor Neuron Disease, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Born on the Edge baby charity, Grand Appeal children’s hospital charity. Donations will also be made to Ammanford junior sports clubs.

All donations will go to the local branch of each charity, so it benefits locally.
