A day to remember!
The sun came out just in time for the ceremony itself, and Welsh Hollywood star, Matthew Rhys (Brothers & Sisters, Patagonia, Beyond Love &c…) posed for photos with the children of Beddgelert primary school. Local boatman Oz’s beautiful boat – resplendent with its Welsh dragon – provided a backdrop as it drifted in the gentle breeze.
We were all very impressed by Matthew’s committment to the cause. He really believes in what we are achieving in Snowdonia and is passionate about the appeal to secure Llyndy in safe hands. He has family roots in Snowdonia and he’s always had a strong affinity with the area. I’m sure that he’ll be helping out more as the appeal progresses.
It was great to also meet Welsh travel writer, Jan Morris who will be publicising our work later in the year. Keep an eye out for that – it’s worth waiting for!
In the meantime, I hear that a couple of other stars have also said that they’d like to help – I’ll keep you posted!
