Charity Calendar

At a recent presentation at Preseli Community Learning Centre three representatives from the Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru namely John Daniels, Dai Davies and Brian Harries received a cheque from Jan Halle on behalf of the adult learners of North Pembrokeshire.

The calendar was produced last year exhibiting work by learners attending classes in St David’s, Fishguard and Preseli Adult Learning Centres. Each month contained pictures of work ranging from Jewellery making, Patchwork, Art and design, Traditionally stained glass, Upholstery, Health and Wellbeing; Dressmaking and Design; Hairdressing and Learning Welsh.

Brian Harries congratulated the learners for raising funds towards promoting awareness of the condition and to help fight Prostate Cancer in Wales. He noted that proceeds raised in Pembrokeshire have gone towards treating patients and training specialists to use the latest technological equipment. With the help of Prostate Cymru and Welsh Government a new Da Vinci Robotic was purchased and based at the Heath Hospital in Cardiff. This new procedure has revolutionised the way of treating prostate cancer and will benefit the people of Pembrokeshire.

He advised all men to check their PSA through their local GP and reminded people that men in Wales have a 1 in 8 chance of developing Prostate Cancer.
