On the 28th of June this year we sadly lost an amazing lady. Anne Wigley was such a kind, bright spirit who spread joy amongst everyone she connected with and we miss her so much every day.

Today is Anne's birthday. If you were fortunate enough to know Anne and spend time in her company, please join us and take a moment to reflect on all of the incredible moments you spent with her and all of the memories you made.

As an Ambassador for Velindre, Anne put so much time into fundraising, spreading awareness and since 2012 raised over a breathtaking Β£30,000.00 for Velindre Cancer Centre Fundraising which we are forever grateful for. πŸ’š

Anne will always hold a special place in our hearts and we'd like to wish her Happy Birthday from everyone at Velindre. πŸ’šπŸŒ»

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT 😁😁 We're delighted to announce that our wonderful Patron, RHOD GILBERT will be leading his fifth overseas trek for @velindre_fundraising in 2020 by taking us to China! β€œI am proud to be leading another trek on behalf of Velindre Cancer Centre…

I thought after 4 treks cancer would have backed off, but apparently it hasn’t, so I’m going again. I’m not sure if it’s true, but apparently you can see the Great Wall of China from space…but why go to all that trouble? Far simpler to join me on this once in a lifetime trek and see the thing close up?” (PS I have no plans to lead any walks to space, so this is your best chance to see it)

For more information or details on the full itinerary please visit the link below or tap the link in our bio;
