2016 saw us hold our first awards night which was enjoyed by all. After everyone had been welcomed with a glass of Bucks Fizz the evening then kicked off in style with the first public showing of the new video that you see on the main page. This was put together by one of the climbers, Richard Watts of Artifact multimedia. The awards, supplied by Club Trophies & Engravers in Cardiff Market, were then dished out seeing a total of 69 awards for all the people who completed the full 10 climbs as well as awards for all of the volunteers & first aiders. The EE sponsored award saw 3 brand new mobile phones given out to the top 3 fundraisers and finally the awards to Emma, Gareth, Danni-Louise and Lucy for being Ten-Y-Fantastic were given out. Philip Price, President of LATCH, was present to receive the final cheque of £50,000 as well as to thank everyone for the vital funds that LATCH need to keep up their amazing work. There was also a special video link from Michael Sheen who is delighted to become ambassador for Ten Y Fan.
After all of that it was time to tuck in to some much needed curry that had been prepared by the college followed by live music from Emily & Adrian Morton and their band.
From the amount of empty bottles and glasses that were on hand at the end we are pretty sure that everyone really let their hair down and it was fantastic to hear so many stories of everyone’s achievements on the mountain.
Bring on 2017!
