This group of amazing people love the Ghostbusters and everything to do with Ghostbusters. Their team are dedicated fans and have nothing but love and respect for any and all fans of the movies, comics, and cartoons. They attend events in full kit and raise money for LATCH. LATCH was formed by a group of families and friends who recognised that the children diagnosed with cancer or leukaemia and their families not only needed medical support, but also social and welfare support to ease the huge financial and emotional burden. The Carmarthenshire Ghostbusters answered the call and are there to help support LATCH by raising money at events with raffles hampers and even allowing people to kit up in their uniforms and BE a full on ghostbuster, every donation is greatly appreciated and will be met with nothing but thanks.
