We are very fortunate to receive fantastic support from a huge number of people.

To recognise this extraordinary support and commitment over the last few years we have appointed 35 special Velindre Ambassadors. Their willingness to support, help and promote Velindre is hugely appreciated, and our Ambassadors help make a huge difference.

Here's what they say:

We held our first Charity Dinner in aid of Velindre in March 2010 as a one off event. It was such a success we decided to do it again and here we are with our 5th dinner. We never forget that our aim is to raise funds for Velindre. As we have lost loved ones to cancer and also seen treatments triumph against the odds, but while doing this we all have a great time too!

Like so many others I’ve experienced the loss of those closest to me to cancer, and I know all too well, the importance of care that goes above and beyond the call of duty in comforting the patients as well as their loved ones during what is a horrific time. My focus after the loss of my parents was to fundraise for a charity that really makes a difference. Velindre has saved the lives and currently treats several friends of mine. It is almost impossible to go anywhere in South Wales and not meet people whose lives have been touched by this powerhouse of treatment, pioneering research and overwhelming care. I know that every penny I raise is going to the front line defence of cancer. An older man approached me whilst I was fundraising prior to Dragonrun1027. His words sum up Velindre to me . . . “My wife was treated at Velindre until she passed recently. Every time I walked in to that hospital to see her, I was surrounded by family I didn’t know I had. They really care, and knowing that helps me carry on”.

Everyone I have ever met associated with Velindre whether it’s the professional staff or the fundraising team has an infectious enthusiasm supporting Velindre and everything it represents – it’s such a great cause and it’s been amazing fun climbing and cycling helping to raise funds.
