Aberaeron Youth Club, led by Ceredigion Youth Service raised £350 by selling Christmas crafts created by young people at Aberaeron Christmas Fayre on 30 November 2019.

Aberaeron Youth Club received a community grant from CAVO Ceredigion which enabled young people to create and produce their own Christmas cards to sell, with the help of local artist Rhiannon Roberts.

Aberaeron Councillor Elizabeth Evans said, “The Organisation's Committee was delighted that members of Aberaeron Youth Club had a stall at our very popular Christmas Fayre this year. They are a big part of our community and we are grateful for the energy and enthusiasm that they brought to our hugely successful Christmas event.”

In addition to Aberaeron Christmas Fayre, Aberaeron Youth Club have been carol singing around the local town to collect money towards the charity.

Sion Henson, one of the Youth Club Members said “I really enjoyed taking part in the community event, and would like to do something like this again next year”.

All proceeds raised will be donated to the Youth Club’s chosen charity of the year, Ceredigion Lifeboat Campaign.

Councillor Catrin Miles is the Cabinet Member with responsibility for Learning Services, Lifelong Learning and Leisure. She said, “Congratulations to the members of Aberaeron Youth Club for their initiative and for working so hard to develop activities and links with their community.”
