Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On the 5th September a team from the Royal Welsh accompanied by Ryan Jones will attempt to complete a relay run from Maindy Barracks in Cardiff to Hightown Barracks in Wrexham by 3pm Friday 6th September.

Why!?!?!?!  The challenge is part of a three year fundraising campaign organised by Captain (Retired) Colin Jones to raise funds for Blind Veterans UK. 

This relay run is the first of a number of challenges planned over the 3 year period including;

- 31st December 2019:  Pen Y Fan Blindfolded Ascent

- 20th June 2020:  Snowdon Blindfolded Ascent

- September 2020:  Llandudno to Wrexham Blindfolded Walk

- August 2021:  Berlin to Wrexham Barracks Cycle Challenge

Blind Veterans UK offer life time support, rehabilitation, training and equipment to blind veterans in order to ensure they are able to lead fulfilling and independent lives.  A great deal of this training is offered via the charities Llandudno Centre in North Wales.  All funds raised by this campaign will be used at this centre, which is used by veteran from all over the UK.

You can support the team members in their challenge by making a donation and sharing this page via your social media channels. 

Thank you for your support!
