Representatives of the Llangollen Christmas Festival Group have been out and about sharing the proceeds of the Christmas raffle that ran alongside the last big Christmas event.

Thanks to an amazing effort the festival team sold a record 4,000 tickets last year.

This has enabled them to donate £1,500 to Wales Air Ambulance, £500 to Llangollen Food Share, £350 to the Combined Churches After School Drop In, £350 to Llangollen Scouts, £100 to Llangollen Brownies and they even managed to help Santa himself with a £200 donation towards a new red and white seasonal suit.  

The remaining £1,000 will help fund this year’s Christmas Festival which will be held on November 30.

The festival team’s Austin “Chem” Cheminais said: "Our thanks go to all the local businesses in and around Llangollen who donated prizes for the raffle, which included a light aircraft flight from the Air Ambulance base at Welshpool Airport.

“Whilst he was at Welshpool Air Ambulance station Santa took the opportunity to hand over a cheque for £250 which was raised during the Liberty Tavern Christmas quiz.”
