Carol Singing
Carol Singing

With the festive season in mind, on the 19th December, a group of us here at the Five Cs made our way to Tesco Extra on Western Avenue in Cardiff with our Christmas hats, tinsel and elf suits and sang carols to entertain Christmas shoppers. Thank you to all our amazing volunteers that gave up some of their time to sing in store and help us raise £140 and to all those that donated their spare change to our cause. We could not do what we do without your generosity.

On the 15th December we held a Christmas fundraiser at the Village Hotel in Cardiff where our guests enjoyed some amazing food, a fantastic live band, our very own photo booth and lots of Christmas cheer.

A massive thank you to all those who came for the evening, those who donated raffle prizes and a huge thank you to all our volunteers that helped in one way or another. With all your help we managed to start our fundraising for the opening of the Summer Camp in 2016.

On the 24th October Chairperson Bethan Powell and Co-Chairperson Zachary Thomas, were invited to speak at the Rotary District 1060 conference held in Cardiff. They talked about the work carried out in Belarus at the Belarusian Children’s Hospice Summer Camp by the Interactor volunteers. Also they thanked the long standing support that The 5Cs receive from Rotary. The conference went extremely well with a lot of interest from the Rotarians and Beth and Zac were presented with certificates of thanks for their time and effort.

This summer marked the tenth year that the Five Cs have sent volunteers to the Belarusian Children's Hospice summer camp in Zabrodia.

Our chair person, Bethan Powell, again spent the whole 10 weeks at the camp with other Trustees and Team Leaders, joining her for various times to help. Everyone from the Five Cs gives their own time and money to volunteer at the camp, in the effort to make the children's time as special as possible.

Everyone involved yet again had a wonderful time, marking another successful summer.

For more information on the summer please see our ‘Summer Newsletter’!
