A WALK to raise awareness for the need for those with learning difficulties to be included in physical activities took place on Saturday (Jun 22).
The walk commenced from the North Dock in Llanelli and ended at Burry Port.
A large group of people of all ages took part in the event which also included a picnic at the Festival Fields.
George Parker of Parker Plant Hire sponsored a large part of the event while a number of businesses from across Llanelli donated raffle prizes including spa days at the Diplomat Hotel, tickets for a Scarlets game, cinema tickets, a meal at High Tide Fish Bar, fruit from Sewards of Llanelli Market, tickets for Heatherton, M & S vouchers, Morrisons vouchers, Burns Pet Food vouchers and much more.
Speaking about the event George Parker said: “It is fantastic to see so many people who give their time to make events like this happen. The volunteers have worked extremely hard. The benefits are evident from the smiles on people’s faces. The business community has also been very generous with their support. Parker Plant Hire is very proud to be part of this event.”
