A February Fundraiser…

Earlier this month Mike and wife Lynne spent a Friday morning in Barclays Bank, Tredegar. The aim was to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation.

Lynne is an excellent cook and once again excelled herself with home made cupcakes which were sold to raise funds. They raised £160 pounds and the Bank has promised to meet that amount. Furthermore raffle tickets are available until Friday. Prizes include a hamper and a meal voucher  for 2 people worth £30.

Thank you Barclays Bank.

The fundraising continued with help from All Saints RC School, Ebbw Vale who held a sponsored keep fit and raised £400 and St Joseph’s School, Tredegar who raised £102.

Well done children, parents and teachers for all your hard work.

Last but not least a big thank you to Mike, Lynne and Bank Manager Jane Roberts pictured here….
