Food For Friends at St Davids Kitchen

Forty supporters of Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru were recently treated to a gourmet meal at the award winning St Davids Kitchen restaurant.

Being one of the fastest rising stars on the Pembrokeshire food scene, the St Davids Kitchen was founded by husband and wife Neil and Ruth Walsh. They have built their reputation by using locally sourced produce and, without doubt, the star of the show on this occasion was their own family reared St Davids Welsh Back Beef.

In thanking Neil and Ruth for their generosity in donating the entire proceeds of the evening to Prostate Cymru, the Chairman of the Pembrokeshire Friends Brian Harries gave an update on the work of the charity and positive impact it was having in supporting local men affected by prostate disease.

Pembrokeshire Friends have played a significant role in funding the training of specialist surgeons who perform robotic surgery on men from West Wales. Until 2 years ago this treatment was not available on the NHS in Wales since which time more than 140 Pembrokeshire men have undergone robotic surgery to the value of 2.8 million pounds.

The chairman also hinted at an exciting new facility that is being launched in 2018 which has been developed, and funded by Prostate Cymru. It is expected to bring a much greater level of support and understanding between patient, family doctor and consultant surgeon.

The evening was rounded off by Ruth and Neil Walsh presenting a cheque for £1240 to Brian Harries.
