Glangwili Hospital’s urology department has been the recipient of a golden donation thanks to the generosity of Newcastle Emlyn couple, Elgan and Margaret Jones.

To celebrate their 50 years of marriage, Mr and Mrs Jones asked friends and family to forgo presents and asked for a donation instead to thank the team who had cared for Mr Jones.

A fantastic £800 was raised and Mr and Mrs Jones recently returned to Glangwili to present their cheque to the team.

Mr Jones said: “We wanted to thank the wonderful team here, Wendy, Julie, Linda, Mike and all the staff. We had a lovely meal with our family and friends and we’d like to thank everyone for their generosity.”

Mr Moosa, Urologist, Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “I wish to convey my sincere thanks to Mr and Mrs Jones for choosing to mark such an occassion as special as their golden wedding anniversary to support our service and to their friends and family for their wonderful generosity.

"Every day patients see the benefit of the kind donations from members of the public and we are very grateful for people’s generosity."
