Carmarthenshire Friends Of Prostate Cymru’s First Event

A successful fundraising event ‘An Evening With Eddie Butler and Carolyn Hitt’ was held at Nantgaredig RFC on Wednesday 14th November in aid of Prostate Cymru, the leading prostate health charity in Wales. The event was organised by the Carmarthenshire Friends of Prostate Cymru, a newly formed friendship group made up of supporters of the charity in the county including notable figures in the business and farming communities who want to help raise awareness of prostate issues and support fundraising in the region.

The group’s Chairman Deryc Rees welcomed guests to the evening which included a delicious three course meal courtesy of Wrights Food Emporium and a great question and answer session featuring special guests Prostate Cymru ambassador and former Welsh rugby player Eddie Butler and award-winning journalist and producer Carolyn Hitt.

Held in the middle of Wales’ autumn international campaign, Eddie and Carolyn reflected on a unique series which has seen the country win both its first game and emerge victorious over Australia and provided valuable insights for the remaining games against Tonga and South Africa. The duo’s shared knowledge and passion for rugby was evident as they discussed interesting developments in the sport and shared humorous stories much to the delight of the audience.

Chairman of the Carmarthenshire Friends of Prostate Cymru, Deryc Rees commented: “What a fantastic first event in the county! It has been really heartening to see the great support from the community so far and I look forward to leading the Carmarthenshire Friends of Prostate Cymru, increasing awareness and the charity’s presence in the county.”

Carmarthenshire Friends of Prostate Cymru committee member and local restaurateur, Simon Wright commented: “I was delighted to be involved with the inaugural Carmarthenshire Friends event. I would like to extend thanks on behalf of the group to Eddie Butler and Carolyn Hitt, Wrights Emporium and Nantgaredig RFC for their invaluable help in making the event such a success.”
