5-9 club


With the help of the 5-9 Club, Catherine Poole realised her dream to open her own tearooms in Merthyr Tydfil. She said:

“Welsh ICE and particularly 5-9 club gave me my life back, has given me lifelong friends and a business that I am determined to make a success. Thanks to 5-9 club, I opened Lunah Tearooms in Merthyr Tydfil in December 2016 and ‘Thank you’ does not seem big enough.
I hope that the funding for 5-9 club can continue. Its value cannot be measured. It is beyond priceless.”
