Plaid Cymru Llanelli have boosted the coffers of the Ty Bryngwyn Hospice bank account by £150 following a dinner they held at the Stradey Arms last week.
Sean Rees, Llanelli Town Councillor said: “Unfortunately, Wales has some of the worst cancer survival rates in Europe. Sixteen thousand people are diagnosed with cancer in Wales every year, with many more being tested and given the all clear. From the moment someone is suspected of having cancer they should be able to expect a high standard of service from diagnosis through to after care.
“The Plaid Llanelli Town Branch had a very well attended Christmas dinner last week at the Stradey Arms. The proceeds from the dinner have now been donated to Ty Bryngwyn Hospice, a Centre of Excellence for palliative care services in Carmarthenshire. We are very pleased to show our support for such a treasured facility.
“We owe a debt of thanks to the volunteers at the Hospice. At the heart of their work is to provide information and advice to both patients and their families. It was so heartening to hear today from members of the Hospice Fundraising Committee of the generous donations that have been received. All of these donations have really helped to make a real positive difference within our communities.”
