Alstom's Charity Challenge Ready To Rock n' Roll

Friday 6th May 2011: Alstom, the main contractor building the new power station at Pembroke today announced they are teaming up with Folly Farm to bring the smash hit musical “That’ll be the Day” to the county for the fifth year in succession. The popular rock and roll variety show known as Pembrokeshire’s biggest party, now an annual event in the charity calendar, raises funds for the Wales Air Ambulance and the RNLI & for the second year in succession Alstom, as the main sponsor of the event, has taken up the challenge to raise an impressive £20,000 for the two charities.

Rob Jordan, Site Manager at Alstom, is looking forward to the event; “As a relatively new business in Pembrokeshire we are keen to engage with our local community and what better way than sponsoring two fun nights which also enables the community to raise funds for two very worthy charities.”

Chris Ebsworth, Managing Director at Folly Farm, added; “We are delighted that Alstom has taken up the Charity Challenge again this year. This is one of the most entertaining events we host at Folly Farm and is a sell out every year, so make sure you book your tickets early.

“Last year the event raised over £14,000 and we hope to top that at the 2011 event. So please help us give a warm Pembrokeshire welcome to Alstom, a major contributor to the local economy in the county, by supporting this event and taking up the Charity Challenge to raise £20,000.”

The Charity Challenge event will be held in the Follies Theatre at Folly Farm on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th of July 2010. Friday’s event will fundraise for the Wales Air Ambulance and the Saturday’s for the RNLI. Tickets are on sale NOW, available from the Folly Farm Box Office by calling 01834 812731. Tickets are £18 per person with proceeds going to the two charities. Doors will open at 6.30pm and the performance begins at 7.30pm.
