A spring in our step!
So, we’ve finally made it to the warmer weather and longer days. We’ve been busy at the Nolan Charity
Fund. Last week we hosted a special evening at Parc y Scarlets to welcome our beneficiaries and award
our grant funding for 2016-17. Some fundraising challenges have also been completed and a gentle walk
enjoyed by dogs and their owners on Tenby’s South Beach to raise money for the charity. In this, our
spring newsletter, there’s a round-up of all our charity news from our new beneficiaries and we also
catch up with last year’s funding award winners. Plus, if you want to get involved, there are details of
forthcoming fundraising events. Happy Easter!
