Age Cymru Sir Gâr is raising funds to help the charity help to support Carmarthenshire’s older residents by challenging people to do the Velocity Zipwire in Bethesda, North Wales, on Saturday 9 September 2017.  Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.     Ann Dymock, chief officer, who has also signed up to do the challenge says,

“ if I can do the zipwire, anyone can –  its important when asking people to help us that we also help ourselves – so I’ve signed up.  I’ll also be joined on the zipwire by our volunteer chairman of our board of trustees, former Coedcae headteacher, Harvey Jones”.    Anyone over the age of 18 can do the zipwire challenge and there’s no age limit.  We’ve booked spaces for the afternoon so anyone wanting to travel there and back in a day can do so. 


If anyone wants to support the charity but not do the zipwire challenge they could sponsor those that are doing it or provide a donation to:  Age Cymru Sir Gar, units 5 – 11, 100 Trostre Road, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire SA15 2EA.  Donations cannot yet be taken online, but the charity hopes to have registered with Just Giving by August 2017.

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
