Outgoing President Bethan was delighted to present a cheque for £1000 to Laura Tranter from Barnardo’s at the Club’s AGM.
President Bethan said, “My chosen charity for the year was Barnardo’s and, in particular, supporting Barnardo’s in Bridgend and their community support for offenders’ families. Barnardo’s are working with Parc Prison on a Literacy project to support families, women and children. Our support will help to fund workbooks for children of affected families – something that has not been done before and that, I believe, is very worthwhile.”
Members have raised money throughout the year by holding a beetle drive, a silent auction, as well as raffles and sales of craft items.
“President Bethan continued, “As the Club has raised so much money – over £2200 in total – as well as this donation to Barnardo’s, we will be supporting other local children’s charities. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and these wonderful causes over the last year. It has been a privilege to be your President.”
