The Women in Wales committee organises an annual fundraising lunch to support children’s projects in Wales.

Betsan said: “I am extremely honoured to be appointed Chair of Women in Wales - an organisation I know well, that has been doing such good work for children and young people in need for the past 30 years. I am very much looking forward to our event, in May, attended by hundreds of women keen to raise money for our nominated charity projects: Dreams & Wishes, Riding for the Disabled North Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire Group, Sandy Bear Children’s Bereavement Charity, Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice and Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society Food Story. We will also enjoy friendship and a great social event, all for good causes.”

At JCP our people get involved in causes they believe in, and this is no exception. We wholeheartedly support Betsan in bringing as much as she can to this role and helping Women in Wales continue its amazing work.”
