A LLANDYSUL bakery will be helping to create magical memories for ill children after making a fantastic donation.

Tregroes Waffles has raised more than £1,000 during its 40th anniversary celebrations which has now been donated to the Wish Fund at Hywel Dda University Health Board.

The company held an anniversary family fun day on Saturday, August 19, where the money was raised.

Managing director Ray D’Arcy said: “It was a hugely successful day raising over £1,000 for the Wish Fund.

“The local community and avid supporters of our waffles turned out in great numbers and enjoyed a fun-filled day. The highlight of the day for many was the bakery opening its doors to allow the public to see how we make our delicious waffles, normally a closely guarded secret.

“We were overwhelmed with the turn out and were thrilled to be able to raise so much money for such a deserving cause.”

The Wish Fund is run by Hywel Dda Health Charities – the official charity of the health board – and provides children and young people who are terminally ill or have life-limiting diseases and their families with special memories.

Katie Hancock, the charity’s fundraising officer, said: “A big thank you to Tregroes Waffles for choosing to support the Wish Fund during your 40th anniversary celebration. It’s fantastic to partner with such a well-loved company.

“The support of our local communities for the Wish Fund enables us to make a positive difference to the children, young people and families supported by the paediatric palliative care team.”
