A former patient, with the support of her village, has raised vital funds through a Vintage show.

The Talgarreg Vintage and Working Show, is an annual event now in its 25th year, and this year part of the charitable funds raised went to support our work at the cancer centre.

Edwina Evans, pictured with Sarah Dawtry, Service Manager, was treated at the Radiotherapy department at the South West Wales Cancer Centre and was keen to support our ongoing work “Everyone was so wonderful to me and I just wanted to say thank you”.

Husband Emyr, has been part of the team that organise the show, which showcases farming equipment from across the years and also has a number of competitions such as flowers, cookery and crafts.  He also expressed his gratitude to the care and support that Edwina had received.  “I am so grateful to the cancer centre staff.  The whole community were keen to raise funds” he said

The event, which was held on Saturday September 21st, was a major success with high number of both entries and attendance, and resulted in £1000 raised for our cancer centre.
