I WOULD like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to everyone who kindly and very generously donated sweets and chocolate to the Support for Romania Chocolate Appeal again this year.

I am very pleased to say that from Blaenavon and surrounding areas, 1,190 parcels of chocolate and sweets were donated. In each parcel, on average, there were five assortments. Many thanks once again for supporting the cause and making it possible for so many children to be able to receive a parcel.

Cllr P Whitcombe, Blaenavon
