A VALE of Clwyd auction managed to raise a four-figure sum for a worthy cause.

The Tremeirchion, Rhuallt, Waen and Cwm Urdd Eisteddfod appeal committee recently held an auction of promises.

As a result of the successful event, which raised in excess of £2,000 the proceeds have been presented to the St Kentigern and Ty Gobaith hospices.

Presentations of cheques for £1,150 to both hospices took place recently at the White House, in Rhuallt.

The Urdd appeal committee would like to thank all who contributed to the success of the auction.
