I own and run Caerphilly Comic Con and I have just finished running Caerphilly’s first ever 50K Ultra Run on 28th April. It is the first of three fundraising events I am completing to raise £5,000 for The Autism Directory Charity.
We are raising much needed funds for The Autism Directory Charity to help fund a community project in Caerphilly.
The funds will go to help build and maintain a new community allotment including supplying equipment such as: - gardening tools, seeds, and plants and setting up the volunteer network to maintain the project for the years to come.
The Autism Directory supports children, adults and families living with autism and they raise awareness in society for a more inclusive place to live.
The charity not only supports the local Caerphilly Borough, but the surrounding boroughs outside Caerphilly.
The Caerphilly 50K Ultra Run was huge success and was organised by myself with the help of Caerphilly Garden Centre on the 28th April. I completed it along with Ryan Flowers, manager at the Garden Centre and a family friend.
Our next challenge is the ‘Sci-Fi Walk’ to Caerphilly Mountain.
On the 12th May, I hope to be joined by a number of families wearing their favourite Sci-Fi or Comic related T-Shirt or in costume (optional) dressed in their favourite characters from any Sci-Fi film.
We will walk from Caerphilly Morrisons to Caerphilly Mountain to help raise awareness for The Autism Charity.
Please Join and help support this great voluntary day out on the 12th May 10am at the Caerphilly Morrisons main entrance. It is a
voluntary event which any family or people can take part and all I ask is that you come dressed in your favourite Sci-Fi T-Shirt and make a small donation for taking part.
I am looking for the whole community; local and business to help by generously donating to a great cause, whilst also having lots of fun, bringing a whole community and surrounding areas together.
After the walk, we will be hosting the Caerphilly Comic Con on the 15th June with many fun and free activities throughout the day for all the family. I hope you can all join us there and continue to help us raise funds for this community project.
All the funds from the Caerphilly 50K Ultra Run, the Sci-Fi Walk and the Caerphilly Comic Con will be collected together towards the donation target.
