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.

Lymphoedema is a secondary condition caused by fluid build up in the lymphatic system, which is an important part of the body's defence against infection. The build up of fluid may result in swelling of the arms and legs and sometimes an increased risk of infection. Patients suffering from a variety of cancers, but particularly breast cancer, may develop lymphoedema as a side effect hence the charity's interest.

The charity will be at Neath Port Talbot Hospital on Thursday 6 September, Wednesday 3 October, Thursday 25 October, Thursday 22 November and Monday 10 December.

Please come and say hello and perhaps pick up a bargain from our tables.
