Following the Golf Competition the Evening Guest were treated to a very entertaining Comedy show from legendary Welsh Comedian Colin Price, before being served up a delicious meal from Bryn Meadows.
The Evenings main fundraising event then took place - the Charity Auction and Raffle. This year combining both a Live and Silent Auction. In total, the Auction raised a staggering £2,299.50!
