ALMOST £2,000 was raised for Llandudno’s St David’s Hospsice and Breast Cancer Wales Friends at an event in a caravan park.

John Hughes, owner of the Tan y Bryn Caravan and Lodge Park, Bryn Pydew held a charity event at the park to raise funds in memory of his wife, Ann Hughes.

Villagers rallied together and raise £1970 for hospice care and cancer charities.

Entertainment on the night was headlined by Elvis impersonator Tommy Holland with food prepared by local chef Bryn Powell.

Also as part of the event, a new bench was unveiled in Ann’s memory now located in the new lodge park area.

Mr Hughes said: “I am so appreciative of all the caravan owners, friends, neighbours and residents of Bryn Pydew that helped make the event a success. We already have plans are afoot to hold a similar event next summer.”

The event raised £1090 for St David’s Hospice and £880 for Breast Cancer Wales. The Hospice's Conwy community fundraiser Adrian Owen said: “I would like to thank John and the family for their generosity in hosting this event for all the caravan and lodge owners, friends and local residents for supporting the night. We really appreciate communities coming together to support their local hospice.
