Cardiff City Ladies scored most goals but the real winner was Help for Heroes charity.

MAY I congratulate the Mayfair Stores in Heath for organising a fantastically successful charity event in aid of "Help for Heroes" on Sunday.

There was something there for everyone: a bouncy castle and side shows for the children, a stall by the charity Guide Dogs for the Blind, the Tongwynlais championship band and food and drink readily available.

The centrepiece was a demonstration of skills by the young boys from the Heath Rangers soccer club followed by a keenly fought match between Cardiff City Ladies and the Heath All Stars, made up mainly of local players of mature years.

An exciting game was viewed by a large crowd, with the ladies just scraping home at five goals to four. Everyone, I am sure, was extremely impressed by the efficient way the day was organised and had a most enjoyable day out, with "Help the Heroes" running out the eventual winner.

I was privileged to have been allowed to help in some small way but all thanks must go to the staff and friends of Mayfair Stores.

Ron Page Councillor for Heath, Cardiff
