It's been a joy and a privilege to support Velindre Centre over the last 20 years. I've seen first hand the dedication and commitment of staff at this wonderful centre, but it's their compassion for their patients that touches me most. We started raising money in support of Velindre for 2 close friends, who were both patients. It comforts us hugely to know we have helped so many others in their name
We are extremely grateful for the fantastic support we have received from award winning Edwards Coaches. They have provided coaches to us for a number of our overseas challenges, and being able to travel in style to Heathrow certainly helps our trekkers and cyclists prepare for the arduous challenges ahead. And after travelling from half way around the World, the Edwards coach is a very welcome sight for our weary fundraisers.
Edwards are proud to continue providing support to an organisation of the stature of Velindre. Having known many close friends and family who have passed through Velindre, we have nothing but an overriding admiration for everyone involved with the charity

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
