I first started supporting Velindre back in 1995 after losing a close friend “Andrew Nichols” to cancer. He was nicknamed Mega, so we decided to put on a “one off” fundraising concert in his memory called Megaday. 26 years on, the annual Megaday event is still going strong, thanks to a passionate team of volunteers. It continues to raise much needed funds for Velindre, in a glowing tribute to Andrew, and other loved ones we’ve also lost along the way.
After organising Megaday for 20 years, I retired to start some new projects. A new donators database for Velindre Fundraising department and the Castle 2 Castle Run. Castle 2 Castle is an annual event where hundreds of runners run from Caerphilly to Cardiff Castle. It’s grown into a huge fundraiser, now superbly lead by fellow Ambassador, Stuart Buswell. We’re all delighted with its popularity and success.
