Volunteers needed for FUW Wales Coast Path challenge



Farmers’ Union of Wales members and friends are planning to cover all 871 miles of the Wales Coast Path during a huge sponsored walk to raise funds for children’s hospice charities Ty Hafan and Ty Gobaith.

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.

Mr Jones said: “More than £11,000 has already been raised since the appeal was launched earlier this year and we hope to boost the fund by taking on this exciting task.

“The idea of covering every section of the Wales Coast Path is a huge challenge and we are looking for volunteers who can help us cover the miles on foot and offer support to our walkers. I have no doubt that, with the enthusiasm and support of union staff, members and friends, 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 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 FUW county office or the union's press office on 01970 820820.
