“Pauline has fundraised since she was a child, and her family has been touched by the effects of cancer. In the early days of the charity, Pauline saw that chemotherapy was being delivered in a tiny space in a clinic at the hospital, and so saw a real need for better facilities.”
In the early days of the charity, Pauline was working for in ambulance control in Powys, and a team of her colleagues decided to push a bed from the Welsh border into the centre of Shrewsbury, to contribute to the appeal. This raised over £1000, and she didn’t stop there.
Over the years, Pauline has run concerts, book sales, rummage sales and a 24 hour Whist Drive, all to support our local services. Pauline has a real taste for adventure, and on her 70th birthday she walked across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. For her 80th birthday, in 2015, headed over to North Wales to have a go on the longest Zipwire in Europe! Her Zipwire adventure raised £2,040.57 in sponsorship, to add to her already impressive contribution. We can’t wait to see what she has planned for her 90th!

The Lewis and Jones family are a creative bunch, who put in a real team effort to support Lingen Davies. They’ve been fundraising for us since 2014 and their most recent event, an auction, raised over £10,000! They are never short of new ideas to raise money and awareness of the charity in their Mid-Wales community.
