More than £3,000 has been raised for Cancer Research Wales at a fundraising event held near Brecon.

On Sunday, July 2, hundreds of visitors streamed through the gates of Penpont country house, between Brecon and Sennybridge, to enjoy a fun-filled day.

Visitors enjoyed a stroll through the garden and topiary, and were treated to delicious cream teas, with some of the guests also taking a guided tour through the house.

The event raised a grand total of £3,400.

Davina Hogg, whose family have lived in Penpont for almost 400 years, and her husband, Gavin, generously hosted the event alongside the committee of Cancer Research Wales - Brecon and Sennybridge Branch.

More than 450 cups of tea and coffee with endless supplies of squash were served at pace with a delicious selection of strawberry cream scones and meringues, cakes and savoury bites.  A bottle stall added to the fun and plants were on sale from Penpont nursery.

Visitors came from as far afield as Llangollen to enjoy the afternoon, and left with both their bellies and hearts full.

All proceeds raised from this event go to Cancer Research Wales in Velindre, Cardiff. The team supports groundbreaking research in centres across Wales, to benefit cancer patients living in Wales, and is committed to spending a minimal amount on its overheads.
