A PENARTH pub with a long history of charity fundraising has donated £1,000 to a local youngster born with a rare form of cerebral palsy.

The Albion presented the cheque to two-year-old Alfie Porter-Smith’s parents, Fiona and Rod, on Sunday, July 13.

The money will go towards intense physiotherapy and muscle strengthening so that Hazelhurst Nursery pupil Alfie can live as normal a life as possible.

The pub, which has raised more than £90,000 through charity quizzes over the last 20 years, recently chose Alfie as its designated recipient for this year.

Former quiz master Richard Bond and current fundraiser Liz High, as well as landlady Mary Sneddon and assistant Ceri Rees, were at the presentation ceremony on the weekend.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at The Albion pub, who are also organising several other fundraisers for Alfie,” said Fiona.
