Denbigh Town FC Charity Football Match

The Annual Uptown vs Downtown Charity Football Match took place at Denbigh Town FC on Bank Holiday Sunday 26th August. Despite a miserable wet start the teams turned out in force with a very energetic pre-match work out by the Uptown team and Kick Off went ahead at 11am prompt.

After their energetic pre match display the blue team (Uptown) took an early lead, however the final score was 4 -2 to the Downtown team and was followed by celebrations and commiserations after at a local hostelry. With the very generous support of players, supporters and members of the public over £1,200 was raised for the Charity

The Organisers kindly nominated the North Wales Cancer Appeal to benefit from the sponsorship proceeds and the very well supported bucket collection.

Our enormous thanks go to James Drury and the rest of the Organising Committee and Shaun Powell of Lock Stock for his help and support on the day.

Andy Knapp - £5095.98

29/07/18 North Wales Honda 116 Targa Tracks Rally

The annual 116 Car Club Targa Tracks Rally started at Glan Y Gors Karting in Cerrigydrudion on Sunday 29th July 2018. With competitors from all over the UK and Ireland taking part, 200 Drivers and Co Drivers signed on from 6am to commence a series of challenging tests all over North Wales.

The North Wales Cancer Appeal is the 116 Car Club nominated Charity and a Raffle for a free entry to next year’s event in aid of the Charity was the first opportunity the 100 teams and their supporters had to donate to the cause.

With over 20 tests and 150 marshals supporting the event there were plenty of people back at Glan Y Gors at the end of the day to see the drivers and their fine array of cars return after a gruelling day.

The Car Club donated the grand total of £1,274.00 to the Charity and thanks go to the Organising Committee of the 116 Car Club and all the supporters of the event that made this fantastic total donation possible.

notice10/04/2017 - London Marathon 2017 – A show of force from the female contingent of Betsi Cadwalder University Health Board Staff is set to conquer the challenge of completing the London Marathon and at the same time raising much needed funds for The North Wales Cancer Appeal.
Working in a range of disciplines in the Health Board across North Wales, these hardy souls have been pounding the pavements for the past few months in preparation for their big challenge.
All first-time London Marathon runners the five ladies all gathered to swap training tips outside the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre last week (Pictured from left to right Mandy Watkins, Carmel Barnett, Alice Roberts, Kirsty Thomson and Sally Jones)

The ‘Pink Perils’ as they are now affectionately known all have their own motivations for wanting to run the Marathon and raise money for the Appeal, but the one thing they do have in common is they are all determined to finish and raise as much money as possible.
Carmel Barnett is Radiotherapy Services Manager at the Cancer Treatment Centre and Kirsty Thomson is Head of Fundraising for Awyr Las. Alice Roberts is training to be a Clinical Scientist in Audiology at Wrexham Maelor and Sally Jones is a GP in Bodnant Surgery in Bangor.
If you want to support any of the ladies – go to their Virgin Money Giving Site and pledge your donation – they will be thrilled to receive your support. Click on any of the links below to donate:

The London Marathon has played an important role in this area of achievement as the Ron & Margaret Smith appeal Committee had the foresight to engage in securing London Marathon Gold Bond status some years ago and now enjoys the benefit of being able to purchase places for runners to raise funds for The Appeal.
To date the London Marathon fundraising has contributed over £60,000 to the Appeal and continues to be an important source of funding. Long may a line of hardy individuals be queuing up, wanting to pound the pavements through those long winter months.
