Carmarthenshire committee member Lorraine Williams was awarded R.A.B.I’s Welsh regional prize for her fundraising efforts.
Lorraine has been honorary treasurer for the Carmarthenshire committee for an incredible 25 years. Her years of hard work and commitment were recognised at an award ceremony in Oxfordshire, where she received her award from Lord Plumb.
Joshua Hosier, R.A.B.I deputy chairman, said: “Lorraine attends all the committee’s events, she’s active, incredibly organised and absolutely dependable. An absolute pleasure to work with.”
Fundraisers in Carmarthenshire also won the R.A.B.I Cup for being the most progressive county committee. Last year, the committee added a new event to the calendar – a hog roast. The event was well-received and raised more than £3k.
Joshua said: “The Carmarthenshire committee has doubled their income since 2012/2013, a phenomenal achievement deserving of this recognition. Their commitment and dedication, not only to raising funds, but also to raising awareness of our work is exemplary.”
Noel Morgan collected the award from Lord Plumb on behalf of the committee. “I started off as a table mover with the committee,” Noel joked in his acceptance speech, “And now I’m joint chairman. It’s a wonderful organisation and we’ve had a lot of fun.”
