On Wednesday 11th March 2020 at Pembrokeshire College a fantastic event took place that really celebrated the power of community cohesion and how small groups of like minded individuals can come together to achieve great things. There is no questionning the togetherness of the Solva Community!
We had the pleasure of hearing from members of Solva Care, who are one of our beneficiaries, along with some inspirational monologues from a local farmer and fisherman. We heard some great poetry and were able to watch a video on all things Solva. They even fed us! The cawl was delicous.

On Monday 17th February 2020 we will be at Canolfan Hermon from 2.00pm delivering our next Promoters Event. As with all of the events, the aim is to promote the scheme to the local community and hopefully get more promoters on board so that more notable good causes can benefit from additional funding.
The event will explain how the scheme is funded, why it was set up, where the money goes and what type of beneficiaries YOU can select to give your 50% donation too.
We hope to see many of you there.
