Caerphilly Halloween charity event raises £800

Published in News at 16:00, Wednesday December 18th, 2013.


A Halloween event held at Caerphilly Castle has raised £803 for the Noah’s Ark Appeal.

Friends Beci Newton and Vikki Alexander organised the event and roped in Morgan Jones councillors Phil Bevan and Mike Prew and the story telling services of AM Lindsay Whittle.

The idea was to try to recreate something of the old traditional Welsh Nos Galan Gaeaf.

The Noah’s Ark Appeal raises vital funds for the Children’s Hospital for Wales at University Hospital Wales in Cardiff.
Vikki said: “It was really hard work but it was great to see everybody enjoying themselves for such a good cause.”

    Well done all the people who organised this charity event, well done in keeping politics out of it. A very good initiative from ordinary people to raise money for the `The Noah’s Ark Appeal` Good on you.
