Velindre Fundraising welcome new Vice President

Velindre Fundraising are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Vice President who will help to support future strategies and plans.

Andrew Morris Head of Fundraising at Velindre said “Alan, Maggie and Hywel – The Petersons’ were the first group to be appointed as Family Ambassadors for Velindre in 2012 and have been terrific supporters for many years; the appointment of Hywel as a Velindre Vice President recognises this exceptional commitment and Hywel’s enthusiasm to take his support to a new level.

Hywel is highly respected by Velindre Patrons, many of whom he has worked closely with over the years and has a terrific reputation both in Wales and nationally and will be a wonderful addition to the Velindre Family we seek to raise even more funds to support cancer patients and their families in Wales.”

Rhian Gibson Charity Director said “ With a new Velindre Cancer Centre due to open in a few years’ time there are some very exciting developments an opportunities ahead and Hywel’s experience and expertise will be a great benefit to us, we are delighted to have him on board in such an influential position.”

Hywel said “I am extremely honoured to be appointed Vice President of Velindre Fundraising. My family & I have supported Velindre for a number years, so I’m delighted to be taking up this new role. By next year one in two of people will develop cancer so to help in some way tackle cancer is very important and rewarding. We all know about the Hospital of Hope, but something that may fly under the radar is the phenomenal research work being undertaken that is helping people who have been diagnosed with cancer.

For example trials such as FAKTION are crucial in giving hope, but are dependent on money gathered through fundraising for continued success. If trials such as FAXTION continue to be successful this will give hope to people well beyond Wales and this demonstrates what a crucial role Velindre plays in society”
