Malcolm’s Alaw Ward do­na­tion

Bangor Mail - - YOUR COMMUNITY -

Yvonne Pitts sadly passed away 10 years ago af­ter a brave bat­tle with Can­cer, aged just 47. Her hus­band Malcolm wanted to thank the peo­ple who treated and cared for his beloved wife, so set out to raise as much money as pos­si­ble to sup­port th­ese wor­thy causes. Over the past 10 years, Malcolm’s challenges have in­cluded eight 1.5 mile swims at Plas Me­nai and a cy­cle ride from Plas Me­nai to Llan­dudno and back, tak­ing in the Great Orme, a round trip of 60 miles. Darren Brame of Plas Me­nai, joined Malcolm on his bike rides, and Malcolm is so grate­ful for his com­mit­ment and guid­ance. Malcolm has man­aged to raise a fan­tas­tic £1,900 for th­ese brilliant causes and re­cently pre­sented a cheque to Alaw Ward, Ban­gor (pic­tured above) for £1,400 and £500 to Eryri Hos­pi­tal in Caernar­fon. Malcolm com­mented, “On be­half of fam­ily and friends and some of the com­mu­nity, I want to thank you for your kind do­na­tions. We will al­ways be in the debt of the dedicated nurses who do such a fan­tas­tic job in their care for us, and all those who have helped us. We are hop­ing to do the work again next year for the same two brilliant causes.”
