Staff at Brynteg Dental Practice in Ammanford have been busy fundraising for Children in Need.

A cake sale to raise money with plenty of sweet treats on offer was available to patients while staff dressed up in Pudsey Bear onesies, Pudsey ears and plenty of glitter.

The event was organised by dental nurse Kayleigh Jones, aunt of Hannah Poole.

Hannah, from Glanaman, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, a form of blood cancer that affects the production of white blood cells.

Hannah underwent intensive chemotherapy from 2013 to 2016 before ringing the bell at the hospital to signal the end of her chemotherapy treatment after she had beaten cancer. Unfortunately, her cancer returned in July 2018 and she is currently battling it for the second time.

Tara James, children's nurse at the Ammanford dental practice, said the team was fully supportive of Kayleigh's idea.

Adding: "This time last year the Children in Need team met up with Hannah, and as she is currently in hospital Kayleigh decided that we as a practice should get involved and help raise money for such a good cause that has helped Hannah in the past.

"We have been a part of the community for 20 years so this was a good opportunity to be able to give something back."

Practice manager Cathy Jones praised the staff for their fundraising efforts.

"This is all down to their hard work," she said. "It's a fun event with plenty of goodies available and all money raised going to a great cause."

A total of £305.50 was raised on the day with Charlie White from Ammanford winning the raffle prize. 
“We are so thrilled,” said Tara. “A big thank you to everyone for their support.”
