A GLASS company has raised more than £1,000 for the Penarth branch of the Royal British Legion.
Angelina Hall and Cathy O’Doherty of Glass By Design handed a cheque to Richard James of The Royal British Legion, Penarth for £1,194.
Glass by Design, based in Penarth, helped lead the community project “32” to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
This art project saw artists and businesses working to create end displays in shop windows.
All the work was made by community groups, including Air Cadets, Sea Cadets, Girl Guides, All-Saints parishioners, Penarth householders and ex-servicemen.
The group “32” was named for the 32 men from All Saints Parish, Penarth who died in the war and were listed on the Roll of Honour Board in All Saints, Victoria Square.
A new board had been unveiled in 2016, after the earlier one was destroyed in a Second World War bombing raid. This prompted research into the men who died, now a book. 
As part of the centennial observance, Glass by Design produced artwork including glass poppies, while wire artist Nina Lazarou led poppy making sessions. Wreaths were delivered to the households in which the 32 men lived in.
The cheque was handed over on Friday January 11 at 11am. 
Glass by Design extended thanks to Nina Lazarou, Karen Hughes, who oversaw 32 pieces of art by ex-servicemen placed on display, and to Foxy’s Deli, Ogam Igam and David Baker who had window displays of the work.
