On Friday, 16 November Mrs Glenda Williams, Manager, Coleshill YPH Residential Centre, presented a cheque for £693.78 to Mr John Jones, Treasurer, for the Festival of LIght 2007.

Mr Robert Ephgrave, Mrs Elizabeth Evans MBE and Mrs Susan Thomas were also present.

This donation is being used as Festival of Light sponsorship, and will be entered into the Book of Dedication which will be on display in Llanelli Town Hall from January 2008. Sadly, the Residential part of the Centre is due to close in January 2008 with consequential redundances.

The residents are being housed in new bungalows in Llanelli and are greatly looking forward to moving to their new homes.

There are concerns, however, about the loss of a respite facility at Coleshill.
