Members of Brawdy and district Young Farmers Club are celebrating their golden jubilee this year.

One of the club’s members, Tim John, is current YFC chairman for Wales and he has chosen Kidney Wales as the charity which clubs throughout the principality are invited to support in 2010.

Brawdy club held a St Valentine’s Masked Ball at the County Show Pavilion with the entire proceeds going towards Tim’s charity and it was encouraging to note a great deal of positive support from neighbouring counties Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion.

During the evening a promise and silent auction took place. Items on offer included a two hour whale and dolphin voyage; a signed Scarlets rugby ball; an Only Men Aloud signed T-shirt; tickets to the Scarlets versus Ulster match and many others. In addition, the Scarlets had agreed to provide a mascot match day package which included one lucky individual being the mascot at the last game of the season against Glasgow, together with three additional stand tickets and a complimentary programme. The successful evening gave Tim’s charity a real boost.

The club also recently presented £245 from a celebratory Cymanfa Ganu to Irene Hirteb and Rachel Jones, of the Pembrokeshire Cardiac Rehabilitation Trust Fund.

The club will officially mark its golden jubilee with a dinner for members, past and present, at the Wolfscastle Country Hotel on April 3rd, when the guest speaker will be Brian Harries.
