    I am organising a charity fundraising Treasure Hunt from “The Other Place” in Pontardawe on the 14/11/10.

    I am looking for anyone to donate prizes for a hamper being put together as a big prize. This allows for advertising for any business donating and for all procedes to go to the charity which is St John Ambulance Ystalyfera/Pontardawe.

    If you cannot donate then no problems but remember you can take part in the treasure hunt starting at 1330 (1.30pm) from the Other Place Pontardawe on the 14/11/10. Entry is £5 per car.

    I look forward to seeing you there
