The Art in Penallt team would like to thank everyone for supporting the weekend “Three Ways to Love Art” at the beginning of October. We were, indeed, truly blessed by the wonderful weather. That aside, it clearly wouldn’t have been the success it was without the enthusiasm and generosity of the public and the hard work of the organising team.
The book keeping is now complete and we can share with you that all the Art sales in Capel Pentwyn reached the grand total of £5,300. Our total income for the whole weekend was £3,171.55. This included fundraising from various events over 2011. Expenses for this year were £1,422.38. The total profit came to £1,749.17.
As the event was so successful we would like to do it again next year and have, provisionally, arranged for the weekend of 6th/7th October 2012. We therefore agreed to retain £749 towards this and to divide the remainder giving £500 each to the two chosen charities, Cancer Research Wales and The Babington Meadow Trust.
There were a number of photographs taken by various people which we would like to add to the website. If you took any that you would like to share could you email them to the webmaster.
