More than 100 people attended the open day on a glorious sunny day to see the benefits of the £300,000 move. It included £75,000 raised by the Tŷ Cymorth Fundraising Appeal committee for a much-needed extension to the activity lounge. It was a very good day, and very busy from 10am to 3.30pm and people could sit out on the patio. The service users were there too and it was really nice to see the patients there.They were very happy with the building and that is the key thing.
It was very rewarding to see it open after all the hard work the committee had put in.
Also there was Carmarthen Mayor Arwel Lloyd and Vice-Chairman elect of Carmarthenshire Council Peter Hughes Griffiths.
Mr Lloyd said: “The newly-located Tŷ Cymorth is something that we can be proud of and we must thank and appreciate the dedicated team of volunteers who have provided such an excellent and purposeful facility. “It is something the late Hazel Powell, who was the initial campaigner for the previous building would be very proud of.”
Councillor Hughes Griffiths added: “It was extremely pleasing to be present during the opening day and to see what has been achieved at Tŷ Cymorth.
“We’re very lucky to have such a wonderful facility within the town and everybody involved deserves huge credit for all their hard work leading up to where we are today.
“I would like to congratulate and thank all the Tŷ Cymorth committee members, trustees and volunteers for their dedication to this wonderful cause over the years.”
