Shelter Cymru attended the Eisteddfod in Denbigh this year. Lots of exciting events, competitions and activities took place on the stand including the Cup challenge. The aim of the competition which was aimed at young people was to stack and dissemble three cup pyramids as quickly as possible. We had some fantastic competitors and at the end of the week Angharad Evans was at the top of the board and won a Tablet PC and case due to her amazing time of 6.04 seconds!!
