St Cadog's Church
Annual Supper and Auction 

We have already had two very successful fundraising events this year, first a Blues Concert and Supper in January and then a Celebrity Quiz and Supper in March with the actor Guy Henry as our guest quizmaster. We are very grateful to everyone who has attended and supported these events. However our main fundraising event is our Annual Supper and Auction which will be held on Saturday the 21st April. We held the first one in 2000, thinking it would be a one off and here we are 18 years later still having them (by public demand). They have been very successful and good fun over all these years and have made a big contribution to keeping the Church going and enabling us to make improvements to the facilities in the Church.

We are very grateful to everyone who has supported us in the past for this event and hope that you will join us again for another very special evening. It is always a very happy time and the supper is excellent and provided by members of the congregation. We also have a wine and soft drinks bar to jolly the evening on. The highlight of course is the Auction itself and we are very grateful to many local businesses for supporting us with donations. This year we are very pleased that Mr Huwel Manley has again agreed to be our auctioneer.

The Supper and Auction is held in Llangadog Community Centre and the doors are open for viewing at 7.00pm . Tickets for the evening are £12 and can be booked by calling 01550 777657. Because of the need to know numbers for catering, tickets must be booked in advance. If you have any good quality items which you wish to donate for the auction please call the above number. Items cannot be accepted on the day.
