HUNDREDS of pounds have been presented for two charities.

Llay Women's Institute raised £800 at their silent auction, held earlier this year.

President, Val Mostyn and secretary, Gwyneth Jones presented cheques for £400 each to Hope House Hospice and the Ethos Group Oswestry.

Spokesman Rosy Turner said: "Members were given an insight into the works of both these inspirational charities before enjoying some social time with tea, coffee and cakes.

"All members worked very hard when we held the silent auction and they decided which charity the institute would support."

Llay WI meets in St Martin’s Church Hall, Llay at 7pm on the second Monday of each month. New members are welcome to attend.
