ExclusivE tickets for a prime viewing location on the FuW’s pavilion balcony alongside the main ring at llanelwedd will be sold in a bid to raise final funds for children’s hospice charities Tŷ Hafan and Tŷ Gobaith on the Wednesday afternoon of the Royal Welsh show.
FuW president Glyn Roberts said: “We are offering 12 people an exclusive chance to enjoy some Pimms and strawberries on the balcony on Wednesday July 22 between 2.30pm and 5pm to watch the senior Welsh cob stallions, which is generally the highlight of the main ring events during the show.
“Tickets for this exclusive occasion can be purchased on a first-come first-served basis at from our head office in Aberystwyth and will cost £30 a ticket. “There is also an opportunity to win two additional tickets to the event as part of a raffle prize during the Royal Welsh show week. All proceeds raised will go towards our charities Tŷ Hafan and Tŷ Gobaith.”
“We announced our charitable causes at the Royal Welsh show in 2013 and have since then held a myriad of events including an all Wales coast path walk, farmhouse breakfast functions, a Thanksgiving Gymanfa Gynu, christmas card design competitions, wooden horse races, bingo evenings and most recently a very successful Noson lawen.
“This function is the final push to raise some more money for these two very deserving hospices,” added Mr Roberts. cardiff-based Tŷ Hafan and Oswestry-based Hope House children’s Hospices which includes Tŷ Gobaith at conwy will share the proceeds of the fund and will be presented with the final cheque on Wednesday July 22 at the Royal Welsh show.
“Back in 2013 we were hopeful that by the end of the next fundraising term the total amount raised by our members and supporters will be at least as much as the £50,000 handed over to the union’s last beneficiary cancer Research Wales. “it gives me immense pleasure to see that we have once again achieved our target,” added Mr Roberts.
