A Big Thank you to Thingumijigs Ceilidh Band

Llantwit Major based Thingumijigs Ceilidh Band recently presented a cheque to The International Tortoise Association located in Sully. The presentation took place at one of the Association’s road shows where pre-hibernation health checks on pets and advice to owners was on offer. The Ceilidh Band performs at public and private events throughout the year; the next public ceilidh being on 22nd November at St. Donats Arts Centre. Band members do not get paid for performing, preferring instead to distribute surplus fee money to charities. This year most of the organisations helped have been those concerned with the human species. However, the Band was also able to give some money to help the work of the tortoise charity which, provides care for sick and injured tortoises and offers support to pet owners. Also, where necessary it provides life long care at its sanctuary. Our picture shows band guitarist David Shields handing over a cheque for £80 to International Tortoise Association treasurer Celia Claypole and the organisation’s chair of trustees Ann Ovenstone M.B.E.
