We’re delighted to be sponsoring the Tour of the Welsh Rugby Regions cycle ride on 17th August this year. Ystradgynlais Hooker (that’s a rugby player for those of you not into sport!;-) Gareth Thomas is organising it to raise money for two local charities and has over 30 riders taking part some travelling from as far as Maidenhead just to do their bit!

This ride is 70 miles across South Wales and will be passing right outside Milkwood Jouse en route but I wont be there, against my better judgement I’ve decided to ride myself! Anyway, proceeds raised go to Golau Cancer Foundation http://www.golaucancerfoundation.wales.nhs.uk/home and Glantawe Gulls Swimming Club. (A local club for swimmers with disabilities, who need funds to stay afloat)

Many of the riders have had cancer affect their close families and friends, which makes this bike ride even more special. Some riders even have parents currently battling cancer so its going to be difficult in more ways than one.

Please help us raise as much as we can as it’s a long way, but not as long for those battling. You can donate via:
