Bryn Terfel, Cerys Matthews and Rebecca Evans are performing at The Shelter Cymru Presidents Concert at Cardiff's St David's Hall on Thursday 17 November.

Bryn Terfel said: "For 30 years, Shelter Cymru has been working tirelessly to prevent homelessness in Wales and all three of us as President and Vice Presidents are very proud to be involved with a charity that has such a long history of helping some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

"The current economic situation means that Shelter Cymru is busier than ever and needs all the help and public support it can get to ensure that its services remain available to anyone with housing problems.

"The 30th birthday concert is a great way to mark such an important milestone, but amid the celebrations I ask people not to forget the thousands of families who would not have a home if it hadn't been for the work Shelter Cymru does every day across Wales."
