RHIWBINA COMMUNITY SCHEME – here’s how you can help
Did you know that you can kindly contribute to village events?
Rhiwbina Events Committee couldn’t stage the Summer or Christmas Festivals without the generous contributions from many of the residents and businesses of Rhiwbina. Every penny donated is ploughed into organising the summer and winter festivals and of course, our giant Village Christmas Tree. The two festivals each year bring the community together and showcase the wonderful variety of independent shops, cafes and businesses that make Rhiwbina so special. We are grateful for donations from as little as £1 per month. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a direct debit mandate.
