We raised £1,872 for Marie Curie!

Our amazing staff raised £1,872 for Marie Curie by virtually walking the Cambrian Way Path with support from an army of friends.

We encouraged individuals, families, businesses, organisations and sports clubs to join staff in covering the 291-mile distance of the Cambrian Way Path virtually in 60 days.

Individuals took on the challenge alone and by splitting the distance with a team or with family and friends, thereby boosting their health and mental wellbeing, whilst supporting a much loved charity.

Welshpool-based WPG Ltd donated medals for all participants and signed up a team of 21 staff members to take on the challenge while Constructiv Clothing Ltd from Newtown sponsored a T-shirt.

The Cambrian Way stretches from Cardiff to Conwy, crossing the Cambrian Mountains, after which Cambrian Training Company is named.

Marie Curie, the UK’s leading end of life charity, provides essential nursing for people with any terminal illness, a free support line and a wealth of information and support on all aspects of dying, death and bereavement.

“We are delighted with the sum raised for Marie Curie thanks to the contributions of staff and supporters,” said Katy Godsell, Marketing Manager, who was one of the many participants.

“Marie Curie is a fantastic charity that touches the lives of so many people in Wales and needs public support more than ever, after the challenges of the last couple of years.”

Marie Curie’s senior community fundraiser for Wales Victoria Hardy, speaking on behalf of the charity’s Welshpool Fundraising Group, said: “We are thrilled that Cambrian Training chose to support Marie Curie in this way. These funds will be used to support our local Marie Curie services so that more people and their families can access the care and support they need, at the time when they need it most.”

Three years ago, Cambrian Training also raised £2,290 for Cancer Research by running, walking and cycling 1,000 miles, visiting all 22 counties of Wales, throughout the year. A team of staff members also ran the Cardiff Half Marathon for the charity.
