Post 16’s Kira Davies planned and hosted a fundraising event earlier this month to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research. The event took place in Penygraig Rugby Club on the 16th and was a huge success! Over £ 400.00 was raised! The evening included performers, food, music, disco and even leg waxing. With the help of volunteers, the evening offered cake sales, singers, DJ and a band. Tonypandy’s very own Josh Bull, Ebony Denton and *Katie Mainwaring’s band* all performed outstandingly. A drag queen and Tiffany the comedienne then accompanied them.
No fundraiser is complete without seeing a group of people embarrassing themselves for charity so a sponsored leg wax was essential. Ross Thomas, Kallum Hughes, Joseph Roberts and Callum Webber all got their legs stripped of hair for a good cause. Younger children also enjoyed themselves, as there was a kids disco just for them!
Kira’s grandmother also attended who is an Alzheimer’s patient herself and is also the inspiration behind the whole event. A big thank you to everyone who helped, Georgia Black, Evie Tudball, Kate Miles, Lisa Colcombe, Abby Newman, Tyler Tutton, Ross Thomas and many others.
