Cynon Valley - - YOUR VIEWS -

ON Satur­day July 7, we cel­e­brate the 10th an­niver­sary of the Macmil­lan Rhondda Walk, and we’re look­ing for help from your read­ers to make this year’s walk the best yet.

This year we’ll be walk­ing for Y Bwthyn – a £7m spe­cial­ist care unit at the Royal Glam­or­gan Hospi­tal in Llantrisant. The eight-bed unit will pro­vide in­pa­tient, out­pa­tient and spe­cial­ist day pal­lia­tive care and sup­port for peo­ple with in­cur­able can­cer and other con­di­tions. Macmil­lan is con­tribut­ing £5m to­wards the new unit – it’s our big­gest ever sin­gle in­vest­ment in Wales.

There are lots of way that your read­ers can get in­volved. Sign up to the fam­ily-friendly, dog-friendly 10-mile walk.

De­tails can be found on our web­site www.macmil­ and search for “Rhondda Walk”. If 10 miles is too far for you to walk then set up a 10 by 10! Just find an­other nine fam­ily mem­bers, friends or col­leagues and walk a mile each.

If you can’t take the walk – then vol­un­teer. We’re look­ing for peo­ple to help set up the walk on the day and to be mar­shals along the route.

We’re also look­ing for spon­sor­ship. Can you or your or­gan­i­sa­tion do­nate wa­ter or snacks for our walk­ers? Per­haps you can help with ban­ners and other Macmil­lan Rhondda Walk ma­te­ri­als?

Join us and be part of some­thing spe­cial and help us raise even more money to sup­port peo­ple in Wales liv­ing with can­cer. Ni­cola Ne­whams Fundrais­ing Man­ager Rhondda Cynon Taf, Merthyr, Brid­gend and South Powys Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port
