Shed-load of acts help out defibrillator appeal
AN evening of music, hats and wellington boots took place in Laugharne over the weekend to raise money in aid of the defibrillators fund.
On Saturday, the Tin Shed Experience played host to an array of singers, including the headlining act, Polly Pardon — one of Dolly Parton's biggest fans with a unique and comical take on Dolly's hit songs.
Other acts included Danielle Lewis, from New Quay, Sherilyn Hamillton-Shaw, from Llanelli, Lorraine King from Glais and Long Lanes comprising of Jon Tregenna, Andy Edwards and Tin Shed Experience owner, Seimon Pugh-Jones
The event kicked off at 4pm, with the weather timing itself perfectly with the rain coming to a halt just as guests began to arrive.
Hats and wellies were worn and decorated as part of a competition with prizes being given to the most creative designs.
Seimon Pugh Jones, co-owner of the Tin Shed Experience with Andrew Isaacs, said: "Where else would you get such superb quality music? Five acts over five hours, all for £5.
"It was an amazing night. We are so proud to be a part of this wonderful charity.
"The aim of getting defibrillators in schools and the local community is crucial when you see the statistics. Last year around 270 children died within schools due to heart failure."
A total of £245 was raised on the night, with all the money going towards the defibrillators fund.
Tin Shed Experience is a quaint and quirky 1940s museum in Laugharne. The museum is a not-for- profit organisation that is run by the help of a small band of volunteers.
Andrew Issac said: "We want part of the project to be educational, picking up on the national curriculum and tailoring some of the exhibit specifically for schools."
