FUW to cover Wales Coast Path for charity
The challenging event will take place on Saturday and Sunday September 13 and 14 when teams of union members, staff and friends will embark on various walks along the whole length of the Wales Coast Path in an effort to boost funds for both charities which have been chosen for FUW president Emyr Jones’ 2014 charity appeal.
More than £11,000 has already been raised since the appeal was launched earlier this year, Mr Jones told county delegates.
He added: “The idea of covering every section of the Wales Coast Path is a huge challenge but I have no doubt that, with the enthusiasm and support of union staff, members and friends already shown for raising as much money as possible for these two inspiring charities, it can be achieved.
“Walks have been organised for all sections of the coast path, varying in length from three to 16 miles, and we will require about 90 teams to help us meet our target.
“We invite anyone willing and able to join us for this exciting fundraising event to let their local FUW county office know as soon as possible. Pre-registration is essential due to the nature of the event,” said Mr Jones.
For further information and to pre-register for the event please contact your local county office or the FUW press office on 01970 820820.
