Welsh pubs fundraising for Gleision Colliery tragedy
Article date: 28 Sep 2011

Following the tragic deaths of the four miners at the Gleision Colliery in Pontardawe, all JD Wetherspoon pubs in South Wales have been raising money for the families.

The pubs will continue to raise money throughout October, with some special fundraising evenings.

The Potters Wheel in Swansea will be staging a fundraising event, on Sunday October 2, with members from the Swansea and Carmarthenshire Campaign for Real Ale branches in attendance. 

The evening, which includes a buffet, will run at the pub in The Kingsway from 7pm onwards and will see local breweries, including Swansea-based Tomos Watkin, showcasing ales and offering samples.

The Red Lion in Sway Road, Morriston is hosting a concert by the Morriston Orpheus Choir, as well as local band Misty, on Sunday October 9, from 7pm onwards.

The Lord Caradoc in Port Talbot will be staging a ‘back to school’ themed charity musical evening, on Sunday October 2 from 8pm until 12midnight. 

Staff will be dressed in school uniform fancy dress and local radio DJ and singer Helen Ensa Morgan will be providing the music.

Paul Williams, area manager for Wetherspoon, said: “We hope that all the events will be well supported and help the pubs to make a substantial donation to the official fund at the end of the month.”
