Rotary Club of Denbigh donate £1,000 to Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod

Generous donation from Rotary Club of Denbigh to Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod to contribute to on going success of cultural festival

As fundraising for this year’s Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod – the event’s 70th anniversary – gathers pace, one of the event’s long-standing supporters has pledged a further £1,000 donation.

Denbigh Rotary Club is the latest organisation to back this year’s milestone event. “The club has supported the Llangollen Eisteddfod for many years, with many of our members attending every year,” said Rotary Club spokesman, John Davies.

He added: “As an annual highlight of the Llangollen calendar, we’re proud to show our support of this iconic festival which is such a large part of the area’s heritage.”

The money will go towards the Llangollen Eisteddfod’s Bursary fund, which supports competitors from across the globe who require financial assistance to attend and compete at the festival.

Merle Hunt, Competitors Liaison Officer at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, added: “As a not-for-profit organisation, the Llangollen Eisteddfod relies on donations, sponsorships and support from volunteers.

“ ‘Diolch yn fawr iawn’ to everyone at the Denbigh Rotary Club for this generous donation.

“We would also like to extend our thanks to the many other Rotary Clubs in the local area that support the Llangollen Eisteddfod, both financially and with the gift of their time as volunteers.

“It is these supporters who make it possible for the International Eisteddfod to continue each year.”

The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, a unique celebration of global music, dance and culture, takes place from Monday 3rd July – Sunday 9th July 2017.
