IN MEMORY - A coffee morning organised by Natalie Franklin and Kimberley Weston in memory of their grandmother Gladys Weston raised £1,153.68 to be divided between the Wales Air Ambulance and Macmillan Cancer Support. The event took place at Knighton Bowling Club and was very well attended. There were hundreds of cakes for sale and a very large selection of raffle prizes. MOONIES - Six members of staff from Knighton Primary school known as the Moonies raised £401 for cancer care charities by selling cakes, burgers, hot dogs and drinks to people attending Felindre sheepdog trials. Pauline Vogel, Kirsty Dewhirst, Vanessa Gibbons, Mandy Evans, Edith Wood and Ann Taylor made nearly all the cakes themselves and worked from 6am till 6pm at the event. The six have been raising money for cancer charities for several years, starting when they did the London Moonwalk. They have also raised money by holding two sleepovers at the school for pupils. At the sheepdog trials the ladies got to meet some of the competitors as well as Welsh TV presenter, singer and farmer Dai Jones. SNOWDON WALK - Friends, colleagues and customers of Tuffins’ stores in Knighton and Craven Arms are among about 30 people so far signing up to walk up Mount Snowdon in fancy dress to raise money for the neonatal unit in Shrewsbury. The unit is currently caring for 16-weeks-premature Faith Langston, daughter of Knighton store deputy manager John Paul and wife Vikki, from Craven Arms. Cash will also help the couple with their travelling costs to see Faith in hospital. There is a ‘Faith for Faith’ page on Facebook that so far has over 1,370 members. On the site there are regular prayers to ask for Faith’s continued progress. Faith, born weighing 1lb 10oz, is now weighing in at 2lb 7oz and is able to go for short periods breathing unaided. Her mum Vikki spends every day at the hospital and dad John Paul and Faith’s big sister Amber, six, make visits as often as they can. Faith will be staying in the neonatal unit until at least her due date in July. The walk up Snowdon will be on May 29. For more information for anyone who wants to take part in the walk or to support the walkers, call Dan on 07814 770571. Donations can also be given to one of the organisers in Tuffins, Knighton.
