Nia Griffith MP and Llanelli Town Mayor Linda Stedman joined in the fun at the Queen of Hearts Vintage tea party held at the Stradey Park Hotel to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation. The theme was the tea party in Alice in Wonderland with stall holders creating a magnificent Winter Wonderland atmosphere.

Speaking at the event Nia Griffith MP thanked organisers Claire Rumble and Jayne Lewis and all who had contributed to the success of the afternoon, and said   

“ We are all very proud that Llanelli has been selected by the British Heart Foundation as a special heart town. It is a tribute to the tremendous warm-hearted generosity of local people.  I have been very privileged to hear from the experts what remarkable scientific progress there has been since the British Heart Foundation was set up, but the mending hearts project is amazing  – scientists are working  to unlock the secret of how zebra fish hearts mend themselves in the hope that they will be able to mend many human hearts. “

The next major event with be the British Heart Foundation Ball on 11th February. Details from Jayne Lewis on lewisja@bhf.org.uk
