Audrey Jenkins Events Coordinator
When Audrey Jenkins' husband David died of cancer in 1995, she decided to join the fundraising committee of Ty Bryngwyn Hospice Appeal.
At that time, the foundations had been laid and Audrey has been fortunate to see the opening of the day care centre, a six bedded in-patient facility, a new family room and recently completed sunroom extensions.
The fund raising events organised over the years, have consisted of fashion shows, coffee mornings, strawberry teas, summer and Christmas raffles, various concerts and a regular stall at Prince Phillip Hospital foyer. The biggest event of the year is the Festival of light which was started in the year 2000.
Audrey says "The public generosity has been magnificent enabling the hospice to build and equip a full Palliative care service of which we can all be proud to have achieved and is a real triumph to the people of Llanelli and outlying districts."
Audrey has enjoyed her time as events coordinator for Ty Bryngwyn, but so much would not have been achieved without her team of volunteers who have supported her for the last eighteen years.
In 2012 Audrey became a Trustee of the Appeal Fund.
