The video shows the charity’s stand on the Maes and the many activities taking place. It includes moving comments by people affected by cancer, as well as scenes of people having fun and eating cake.

 

First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones and Liberal Democrat leader Kirsty Williams talk powerfully about what Macmillan’s work means to them and the importance of the Eisteddfod to the cultural life of Wales.

 

The Eisteddfod organisers’ awarded Macmillan Wales best stand on the Maes for being so welcoming.

 

Susan Morris, Macmillan head of services in Wales, said: “The National Eisteddfod is a huge part of cultural life in Wales and for us it is the perfect opportunity to meet people and offer support.

 

“We also offer a cuppa and the chance to chat and this was welcomed by our many visitors.

 

“We are thrilled that our stand won such a prestigious award against stiff competition. We were also pleased that we could host a coffee morning each day and so many people came in to see us.

 

“Carwyn Jones and Kirsty Williams were very generous with their time and encapsulate perfectly what the Eisteddfod means to life in Wales.”

 

The video was produced for Macmillan by Caerphilly-based SSP Media.
