Pembrokeshire couple Chris Williams and Suzanne Evans raised £2,000 for Withybush Hospital by staging a truck show at the county showground.

The Celtic Truck Show attracted more than 150 trucks for what was a great family day out over August bank holiday weekend.

Chris of Haverfordwest and Suzanne from Milford Haven said: “We are a team who have a passion for trucks and wanted to do something to support a good cause.

“We put on the show to support our local NHS, as all the staff do a brilliant job and have worked so hard, especially over the last two years.

“The event went really well. We were only expecting 80 to 100 trucks and between 150 and 180 turned up. We raised so much more money than we hoped and hope to hold another one over the May bank holiday in 2022.

“We are so grateful to everyone who attended and supported the show. To the public, our sponsors and the lorry drivers, we can’t thank you enough.”

The event raised £4,000 in total – with £2,000 going to Withybush Hospital and £2,000 to Wales Air Ambulance.

Nicola Llewelyn, Head of Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said they wanted to thank Chris and Suzanne for their fundraising.

“The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive,” said Nicola.
