ELEVEN-year-old pupil Cai James from Eglwyswrw Primary School is to be a guest at the Prostate Cymru annual ambassadors’ lunch later this month.

Each year, fundraisers who support the charity throughout Wales are recognised and Cai has been nominated for the Prostate Cymru Young Fundraiser of the Year award having raised £1,600 in recent months.

Cai was inspired to raise money for Prostate Cymru in response to his grandfather Hayward Jones being treated for prostate cancer.

Cai began his fundraising last Christmas by making homemade Christmas decorations which he sold at the local Christmas fayre.

He also organised a raffle and held a Cawl a Chan at the Salutation Inn, Velindre Farchog, which donated the cawl in support.

He continues to make and sell Welsh flag magnets and hanging decorations and has even attracted interest from potential buyers in Cardiff.

Prostate Cymru enjoys the support of many past and present Welsh rugby stars and Cai, who is passionate about rugby, is hoping to meet some of his idols who will be attending the event.
