After a number of years out, the Harriers re-introduced the bag packing day while the shops were full of shoppers at this busy time of year. This is one of the two Carmarthen Harriers fund raising projects this year - the other one is the sale of raffle tickets later in the year after Christmas.

On Sunday, some of the athletes and its members helped out at the Tesco store in Morfa Lane in the centre of Carmarthen packing customers bags and assisting at the till point. Their commitment, kindness and support was first class and each and every one of them was a credit to the club raising funds for the Carmarthen and Districts Athletics Club. Near the entrance of the store, we were also selling raffle tickets with the winner receiving a selection of wine. For those that did buy a ticket, they would have been able to have a look at the pictures and write-ups included in the 2016 Harriers Annual Report book of the club's successes over the last 12 months.

Carmarthen Harriers would like to thank Ian Little, the Manager of the Tesco extra store in Carmarthen and its staff for allowing us to use their store for this year's fundraising event. Many thanks also to all those customers and shoppers in Tesco during the day on Sunday who donated in any way - we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year / Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.

It is hoped for the activity to take place once again in the near future, and that more members from the club will come forward to support and be available to get involved. It is a great way to help others out outside of running and very rewarding at the end.

Thank you / Diolch yn fawr
