Welsh Hearts


On Wednesday, 29 March, Caffi Pen Dinas, at The National Library of Wales will host a tea party at 3:00 pm to raise money for 'Welsh Hearts: The Heart Charity for Wales'.

"A warm welcome awaits all for tea or coffee and cake and a chance to socialize and contribute to this important charity" said Elaine Turnpenney, Caffi Pen Dinas Manager.

A keen supporter of the charity is the local man, Glan Davies and he said:

"I am delighted that The National Library of Wales has chosen to support this worthy cause. The contribution made as a result of the tea party at Caffi Pen Dinas will contribute to our goal of raising funds in Wales - to spend in Wales, for the benefit of the local community. Since its inception, the charity has installed over 450 defibrillators across Wales, with 80 located in Ceredigion and there is space in the county to install more. We have also educated and trained over 15,000 people all over Wales, how to use the equipment and how to save the life of a person who has had a cardiac arrest."

The charity is keen to continue the work of educating communities and the profits made from this event will contribute to this worthy cause.
