recipients from the various organisations.
Cheques for £100 each were recently presented to representatives from Llangollen Welfare House, the Methodist Hall and St Collen’s Community Centre to celebrate 12 months since the Llangollen Community Book was published.
The book's authors, Andrew Gale and Simon Collinge, pledged that £1 from each copy sold would be donated to local community venues where most of the photographs it features were taken.
Simon Collinge said: “We were really grateful for the use of their venues to take group photographs and we were pleased to be able to give a £100 donation, as promised, to each of the three groups.
"We are now endeavouring to further increase sales and hoping that more people featured in the book will purchase a copy, again putting more money back into the community.
"Over 300 copies have been sold but we still need to sell at least another 300 to break even on our original investment.”
The Llangollen Community Book features over 100 clubs, groups and societies and can be viewed at www.llangollencommunity.co.uk or purchased in Llangollen at Courtyard Books, Gales, Llangollen Museum and the Tourist Information Centre.
