A WEEKEND of vintage music and comedy has raised more than £12,500 for charity.
That'll Be The Day, held at Folly Farm in July, featured a wealth of talent, singing hits from the 60s, 70s and 80s, interspersed with classic comedy performances.
Sponsored by RWE npower and Folly Farm, the event was organiser by Phil Thompson, who described the sell-out event as a “huge success”.
The money raised has now been shared equally between RNLI Pembroke Ladies Guild, Wales Air Ambulance and Haverfordwest Rotary Club charities, which include Barnardo's.
Mr Thompson said more than £62,500 had been raised by the annual event since 2010.
Mair Lewis, Business Support and Community Relations Office for RWE npower’s Pembroke Power Station said: "We are delighted to sponsor this event which raised so many funds for so many worthy causes."
The Rotary Club of Haverfordwest were heavily involved this year assisting with promotion of the event and ticket selling, and club president Stuart Watt said: "I was very pleased to be offered the opportunity to involve Haverfordwest Rotary Club this year to enable us to give much needed donations to local charities."
Tickets for next year's event, which takes place at Folly Farm on July 11 and 12, go on sale soon.
