THE Urdd Eisteddfod has asked Llangollen and Llantysilio to raise £11,000 toward the Welsh Youth Festival, to be held in Ruthin in May.
The Llangollen & Llantysilio Fundraising Committee got off to a good start with a hog roast and fun night at the RAFA Club in Llangollen, which raised £375.
More than 100 people turned up and sampled the food supplied by Dai Jones of Glyndyfrdwy and adults and children alike joined in with fun and games.
Forthcoming money-spinners include a Quiz Night tomorrow (Friday) at 7.30pm - also at the RAFA Club in Llangollen - and a Noson Lawen at the Royal International Pavilion in Llangollen at the end of November featuring Hogiau'r Wyddfa and Annette Bryn Parri.
