This inter-generational troupe of supporters have been with us as fundraisers since 2014, after a personal experience of cancer within the family. Mary and Gareth Lewis, their daughter Rachel and her husband Arwyn, and their children Catrin and Huw, have given the charity a huge amount of support through a range of fundraising projects.
Based in Llanfyllin, they travel as far as Welshpool, Newtown and beyond to represent Lingen Davies, collect donations and make sure the people of Powys know all about the charity.
We do it because there are so many people in our area that have had, are having or about to have treatment at the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre and feel it is hugely important to keep the treatment centre as local as possible. The fact that we work together as a family, having fun in organising these events, makes it enjoyable. Also, we have learnt that the more effort you put in, the more rewarding it is’, said Gareth, summing up the feelings of the whole family.
We think it is wonderful how the family work together in their fundraising activities- they’re a clever bunch with a lot of ideas, and we’re looking forward to hearing about their next project!
