The annual Elvis Festival took place recently, an event that takes place every September in Porthcawl. Elvis fans from across the world flock to the sea side town to take part in the very welsh Elvis themed event. During the weekend over 1000 shows were put on to pay homage to the king of rock 'n' roll!

The shop managers, Companions and volunteers have been saving Elvis themed donations throughout the year in preparation for the Elvis festival. They even decorated the shop window with Elvis memorabilia and an American flag to catch the attention of passers by!
