A local butcher’s shop is celebrating this Easter after a fantastic charity campaign. Howard, Sue and Christopher Powell of Howard’s Butcher on Commercial Street, Pontymister have been collecting Easter Eggs for children at Velindre Cancer Centre for the last 15 years. However, the last few years have been so successful that Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice has also benefited. This year, over 230 eggs were collected – the highest number yet – meaning that children at the Royal Gwent Hospital (Bluebell Ward) in Newport also received some eggs.

Commenting on the success of this year’s appeal, Howard Powell said:

Thank you very much to our customers for donating these eggs. Their generosity gives pleasure to all of these children.
