R.A.B.I’s Ceredigion committee teamed up with the Clwb Cledlyn Club to stage a Twmpath Dawn on June 27 at Dolwen, Llanwenog. The event raised money for farmers in need as well as recreational facilities for the children of Drefach and Llanwenog.
Calling the Twmpath and providing the entertainment were two of Ceredigion’s best known sons, authors Erwyd Howells and Bryan yr Organ.
The evening featured a barbecue and open bar as well as a skills auction where people were able to bid for lots such as beauty treatments, gardening help and cake-baking.
Much of R.A.B.I’s funding comes from public donations, events arranged by county committees, and support from businesses and community groups. Last year, R.A.B.I gave out more than £41,000 to farming people in Ceredigion alone.
R.A.B.I regional manager for Wales, Linda Jones, said: “Farming is a great industry but not everyone can take advantage of the opportunities available and that’s where R.A.B.I can help. We’re especially thankful to Paula and Tim Williams and the members of Clwb cledlyn club for a highly successful and fun evening.”
