Vale of Llangollen Captain Kevin Walsh has concluded his year by raising another substantial amount for a local charity.

With the help of club Lady Captain Jane Thomas, they have worked together to raise a remarkable £7,000 for Nightingale House Hospice Wrexham.

This is on top of the £3,000 that Kevin raised for his own chosen charity - details found in an earleir posting.

Congratulations to you both - a truly excellent year ended on a high!
