A sociable evening consisting of a hearty meal of sausages and mash, followed by a splendid variety of homemade puddings made by committee members, has raised £1,028.
The winter warmer event was organised by R.A.B.I’s Montgomeryshire committee and held at Mochdre Old School.
Potatoes for the event were generously donated by local farmer Glyn Watkins and sausages were kindly given by Ithyl and Lynda Brown of Neuadd Fach Baconry, Llandinam and keeping it in the family, their son, talented saxophonist Phil Brown entertained the guests with a wide repertoire of popular songs.
R.A.B.I regional manager for Wales, Linda Jones, said: “The Winter Warmer event was a lovely evening of community socialising. Good food, good company and some great music, what more can you wish for? It was good to see the Old School full of smiling faces with everyone having a good time and a huge thanks to our committee members for arranging this fabulous event.”
Ann Davies, Montgomeryshire event secretary, added: “We would like to thank everyone for attending our Winter Warmer evening. A special thanks to Mochdre & Penstrowed YFC members, Ryan Vaughn, Kieran Owen, Mathew Owen, Billy Owen, Sam Morgan and George Turley for their general help on the evening, it was most appreciated. Also a big thank you to our auctioneer, Gordon Jones from Mochdre, who certainly helped to boost our funds and to Howells Fuel Oils Newtown for their kind sponsorship.”
