Jonathan Davies OBE President of Velindre Fundraising said: “I think this is fantastic idea to get youngsters involved. Not only can they back Wales, which I know the players and coaches really appreciate, but they can also raise funds for a fantastic charity.”
“I’m sure that many of the pupils, parents, staff, teachers and head teachers in schools throughout Wales will in some way be affected by cancer so it would be superb to get their backing. I hope that hundreds of schools throughout Wales will take part."
Velindre supporters such as Martyn Williams, Rhod Gilbert, James Bradfield, Craig Bellamy, Matthew Rhys, Gareth Thomas and Jamie Roberts have all backed the campaign.
