Thank you so much for contributing to Wear Red For Wales and Velindre last Friday 10th March!
The money raised from Wear Red will help fund things over and above those provided by the NHS, so your fundraising really is going to make a huge difference.
We have been incredibly moved by the commitment and enthusiasm shown by so many to raise vital funds for Velindre - Wales’ Premier Cancer Centre. On the back of this year’s tremendous success we have lots of exciting plans already taking place for next year’s campaign, which we do hope you will join us for again.
Thank you once again for your fantastic support!
"I would personally like to thank everyone at Velindre for the care I've received during my treatment the last few months. I have no words to describe my gratitude towards you. Thank you for the special way that you made me feel at ease at such a scary time. Your care, reassurance, professionalism and laughter really did make me feel I had the warm arms of Velindre around me. I can even say I miss you all ...not the treatment though! I will be popping in next week with a donation from a very grateful family. Diolch enfawr!xxx" - Siwan Bowen Jones.
Cancer will affect one in two people born after 1960 and it’s a simple statistic that drives home the battle we face against this terrible disease.
Velindre Cancer Centre’s aim is for everybody in Wales, to wear red
for Wales on Friday 10th March 2017, when Wales take on Ireland in the RBS Six Nations at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff and donate a minimum of £1 to Velindre.
If you are unable to wear red clothing why not wear something else red such as a scarf, socks, shoes, earrings, lipstick...anything you can to take part and show your support.
As well as the money you will raise from taking part, the publicity you will attract is also very important for us as we want as many people as possible to see your fantastic efforts. Please share your photographs, posts and video’s on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, tagging us in, so everybody can see what an amazing thing you’re doing for Velindre!
And be as creative as possible with your photographs and videos as the best ones will be featured in the media and on materials for next year’s campaign!
