Latest news from Walk on Wales, supporting the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal and Combat Stress
Walk on Wales



As the fundraising draws to a close, we find ourselves continually amazed by the fundraising still going on. PreventaPest Ltd from Carmarthen have decided to hold their Annual Charity Gala Dinner in our honour. We are fully supporting this dinner in any way we can and we would urge you to buy your tickets before they sell out. 

The dinner is being help at Parc Y Scarlets, Llanelli, on Saturday July 12th 2014. It starts at 6pm and promises the usual fun and games, along with a great auction and a top-class guest speaker. tickets (£35) are available from Adam at PreventaPest Ltd on 07772289648 or e-mail

We hope to see you all there!

Team Lonergan

After the unrivalled success of the November 8th dinner last year you could be forgiven for thinking that the Lonergan family have done their fair share of fundraising for our cause. Dominic and Sian, however, decided that they would hold another dinner on St David's Day 2014! I'm sure all who attended either event would agree that they were both great successes. Dominic popped into the office the other day with a cheque for £20,771.14!!!! We hope that the Lonergan family accept our thanks and the gratitude of our charities.

Welsh Guards Rugby Reunion

A massive thank you to Glyn White and Bryn Pennock from Welsh Guards Rugby Reunion who have presented us with a cheque for £3000. This takes the WGRR fundraising total to £43,000.

I'm sure you'll all agree that their 'Welsh Guards Family' ethos is still very much alive.

Braces Bakery

Colin Brace, Director of Braces Bakery, came up trumps again and handed us a personal cheque for £1000. Colin, himself a Normandy Veteran, was taken aback by our plans for the Walk last year and was particularly moved when he first saw the baton. As well as this generous donation, Braces Bakery also supplied us, free of charge, with bread and cakes for the duration of the walk which kept all our teams going throughout the event. A huge thank you from all of us at Walk on Wales.

Welsh Guards Reunited

Mandy Wakeley popped into the office the other day with a cheque from £2750, a very generous donation from Welsh Guards Reunited. We'd like to thank WGR again for their much valued support and particularly for our next project.
