22.06.19 Fundraising at Tesco Llandudno

On a hot summer's day our lovely volunteers were busy collecting at Tesco Llandudno Junction. It was very easy finding volunteers for today's collection as 4 members of HSBC Llandudno staff kindly came to our rescue and it was so good to have them on board. Tesco customers were extremely generous once again and we collected over £1000!! Excellent! Thank you to Tesco, to our volunteers and to all who donated.

23.05.19 Asia to Anglesey Cyclists Return

Huge congratulations to Andy Fowell, Steve MacVicar and Roger Thomas who completed their epic cycle journey from Istanbul to Holyhead today. By cycling an average of 65 miles a day over nearly two months, they rode 5,500 miles in total, through four mountain ranges on what’s known as the iron curtain cycle trail. They’ve raised over £20,000 so far for two charities, the MND Association and St David's Hospice. A large crowd awaited as they crossed the bridge over to Anglesey, and pupils from Treffos School had the honour of ticking off on their t-shirts the name of the last of the sixteen countries they had passed through.
