Charity Concert a Great Success
The charity concert held at St. David's Church, Neath, on 2nd July was a great success. The concert featured soprano Rebecca Evans with the Neath Port Talbot Cancer Challenge Singers. The committee is very pleased to announce that the profit of £3250 has enabled the charity to meet its goal of raising over £100,000 for the purchase of a piece of equipment to be used at Neath Port Talbot Hospital to treat those suffering from lymphoedema.

All proceeds from the event were donated to the charity and we are delighted that the sum of £380 was raised.

Neath Writer's Group has produced a book of poems and short stories, entitled "You Are Never Alone", about the challenges of living with cancer.
