Dress to Impress: A night to remember

Relive the glamour of our "Dress to Impress" ball and see how the community's support helped raise over £3,000 for local charities

Members of the Llanelli community dressed to impress!

On 10th May, Llanelli Rotary Club hosted its "Dress to Impress" ball, a glamorous evening filled with elegance, entertainment, and generosity. The event brought together community members, all dressed to the nines, to support three vital causes: Wales Air Ambulance, Ty Hafan hospice and Ysgol Heol Goffa.

The night kicked off with a delicious dinner, where guests enjoyed a meal in the company of friends old and new. The atmosphere was alive with conversation and anticipation for the evening's festivities. Following dinner, the excitement ramped up with our auction and raffle draw.
