Centenarian raises over £500 for Sight Cymru!

Elthel Woodward who lives in Swyffryd recently celebrated her 100th birthday. Congratulations Ethel!

Always thinking of others Ethel asked friends and relatives not to bring presents to her celebrations – instead she wished to make a donation to Sight Cymru as she knows that the monies will be spent locally to help other people suffering with sight loss. A total of £577.15 was raised and Ethel’s son Steve brought the donation into our offices in Pontypool recently.

Ethel lives with, and is cared for by her son and daughter-in-law and Ethel’s daughter Pamela.

She has been totally blind for the last 20 years, her condition was caused by Glaucoma. Ethel could have chosen any number of charities but chose Sight Cymru as she knows how difficult it is to cope with sight loss.

What an inspirational lady!
