Join us and be part of something special
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.macmillan.org.uk 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
