Pobl Bach Nursery team from Carmarthen in skydive for charity


Six colleagues from the Pobl Bach Nurseries in Llangunnor and Johnstown in Carmarthen jumped out of a plane to raise money for charity.
The group, jumped from a plane at 12,000 feet, did the jump in aid of cancer charities as manager Annie Morgans lost her husband Gary to chronic myeloid leukaemia in November 1999 when he was just 29.
She was joined by Kay Richards, Emma Cooper, Amy Richmond, Annie Morgans and Claire Holt and raised £1,870.17.
They have donated £600 to Cancer Research Wales and £1,270.17 to the Chemotherapy Day Unit at Glangwili Hospital.
Annie, from Llansawel, said “Cancer is something that unfortunately touches everyone’s lives and we felt that it would be good to support such worthwhile local causes helping to fight cancer.
“Gary was cared for by staff at the Chemotherapy Day Unit at Glangwili Hospital and it is nice to give something back for the fantastic care that he received. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us in raising this fantastic sum of money.”
Sister Linda Jones, Chemotherapy Day Unit, Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “We would like to thank the staff of Pobl Bach Nurseries for their generous donation and for acknowledging the work being undertaken by the staff of the Chemotherapy Day Unit. Their donation will help us to maintain the best possible environment for care to our patients and their families on a daily basis.”
