Passionate Welshmen raise money for Prostate Cymru

A group of retired Welsh speaking friends who meet every week in Haverfordwest to converse in the medium of Welsh have over the last two years raised £750 in support of the local charity Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru.

The group meet under the title of “Coffi and Clonc” which translated means “Coffee and Chat”. As well as enjoying conversing through the medium of Welsh they have donated their loose change each week to raise the money which will be used in support of Prostate Cymru.

In making the presentation Glan Phillips stated, “We chose Prostate Cymru to receive this money as some of our group have had their lives affected by prostate cancer or prostate related issues and we wanted to ensure that the work of the charity continues in both raising awareness and treatments in relation to prostate cancer”. Receiving the cheque on behalf of the charity, committee member June Rees MBE said “This is a wonderful example of a group of friends supporting a charity dedicated to fighting against a disease that is the most commonly-diagnosed cancer in Welshmen with 1 in 8 of the male population affected by it and 550 men dying from it in the Principality each year.”
