£280 was raised at Sunday’s cake sale
A Best of British party will be held on 30th August to raise money for two important military charities.
The party, to be held at Penterry, Chepstow, will celebrate Blighty whilst raising money for Help for Heroes and Rifles charity Care for Casualties.
Tickets for the night, which starts from 5pm, cost just £30 and include dinner, dancing, an auction, hog roast and some fantastic traditional games, including pig and terrier racing, apple bobbing and wellie wanging.
The barn, overlooking the beautiful Wye Valley, has ample parking and a babysitter on site.

Money raised for Help for Heroes is going towards Victoria’s challenge trek, 100km across the Sahara Desert, in November.
The trek will take seven days and will see the 24-year-old tackle sand dunes, sand storms and hopefully the odd oasis across the Moroccan Sahara in temperatures of around 30°C.
Victoria said: “I needed something to take me out of my comfort zone and this is certainly it! I really don’t like the heat, am not a fan of snakes and scorpions and certainly prefer horses to camels, but this is a great cause and I am very excited to reach my £3000 target.
“The party is going to be a wonderful night and at just £30, it’s well worth coming along!”
Beacon deputy editor Victoria would also like to thank all those who visited or supported the Help for Heroes cake sale on Monnow Street on Sunday. The day raised £280.00 for the cause, well above the target of £200!
