Young Ambassadors raise over £20,000 for Velindre Cancer Centre!
Introducing, the next generation of Velindre Fundraisers!
On 12th January, Velindre Cancer Charity hosted a Young Ambassador Presentation Evening which welcomed Velindre’s youngest supporters to The Miskin Manor Hotel where they were celebrated for their commitment, passion and unwavering support for Velindre Cancer Centre.
The children were presented with their prizes by Chair of Velindre UNHST, Donna Mead OBE, and received a personal thank you and photo with our celebrity guest, former Welsh rugby player, Lee Byrne.
During the previous 12 months, the Velindre Young Ambassadors have been using their voice, boosting support and raising funds through a variety of activities including raffles, bake sales, fitness challenges, school events, talks within their communities and a special planting project that took place at the staff well-being hub at the cancer centre.
In the last year, these brilliant young people have raised over £20,000 for our Hospital Of Hope and have already started planning their 2023 activities and events.
These children are a credit to their families and their communities. We are so unbelievably proud to call them Velindre Young Ambassadors and feel more excited than ever for the year they have planned ahead of them.
