The kind hearted community of Burry Port has rallied round once more to help raise money for a 14-year-old young girl suffering from a brain tumour.

Isabel Williams from Penygroes was diagnosed with a brain tumour two years ago.

The brave teenager has undergone operations, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Sadly there is no more treatment that can be offered locally.

Great Ormond Street in London have offered clinical trials and Isabel will be heading to Great Ormond street hospital very soon accompanied by her family .

A fund has been set up for Isabel and her family. County Councillor Amanda Fox and husband Lee know the family and decided to help.

Speaking to Llanelli online Cllr Fox said: “We organised a Fish and Chip Supper – Quiz Night at the Ashburnham Golf Club Burry Port on Saturday (Apr 7).

“It was a ticket only event which was a sell out. The food was supplied by Samantha and Danny and it was absolutely superb.

“The fundraiser included a quick auction and raffle. I was overwhelmed with the £1,001.00 raised.

“Isabel attended the event and was presented with a teddy bear from the people of Burry Port to take with her to hospital and has named it Foxy.

“A Trophy (Isabel’s charity cup 2018) was presented to the winning team ‘Six of the Best’ who were, Frances and Graham Roberts, Julie and Howard Whitehead, Ernie Young and John Pricket.

“We can’t express enough how grateful they are to everyone for their support and to those who attended the event. To those who gave donations and to everyone who donated raffle prizes.”

Isabel’s parents Amanda and Mark said that they were extremely grateful to Amanda and Lee and wished to thank the community of Burry port for their generosity.
