Brecongate and Carrie Brown - Kicking cancers ass


Our Chosen Charity BOWEL CANCER UK

On the 24th of July 2022, a group of dedicated individuals from Brecongate Projects Ltd embarked on an inspiring journey, walking from The Grange Hospital in Cwmbran to Velindre Hospital in Cardiff. This venture was not just a physical challenge but a heartfelt endeavor to raise awareness and funds for Bowel Cancer UK, a cause that the company wholeheartedly supports.

The decision to support Bowel Cancer UK was not taken lightly, and Brecongate Projects Ltd demonstrated their commitment by establishing a JustGiving page. The response from the community was overwhelming, as the fundraising efforts led to a remarkable total of £8530. This significant sum would contribute to the ongoing fight against bowel cancer, supporting research, awareness campaigns, and those affected by the disease.

The entire 22.5-mile walk was meticulously planned by Ian Palmer, a Contracts Manager at Brecongate Projects Ltd. His dedication to the cause and meticulous planning ensured that the route took participants through a diverse landscape, encompassing picturesque villages, challenging mountain walks, and the breathtaking beauty of the countryside. This carefully chosen path not only tested the walkers' physical endurance but also provided them with moments of serenity and appreciation for the natural surroundings.

The journey was made possible with the support of a back-up vehicle, strategically positioned at specific rendezvous points along the route. This vehicle played a crucial role by carrying much-needed water and refreshments, providing the participants with the sustenance required to persevere through the challenging terrain. The sense of camaraderie and mutual support among the walkers, coupled with the logistical support from the backup vehicle, created a unified team spirit that carried them through every step of the way.

As the group navigated through the diverse landscapes and conquered the miles, they not only raised funds for a noble cause but also symbolized the power of community and determination. The Grange Hospital to Velindre Hospital walk became more than a physical challenge; it became a testament to the collective strength of individuals coming together to make a positive impact on the fight against bowel cancer.

In conclusion, this extraordinary journey from Cwmbran to Cardiff stands as a shining example of how a community, driven by purpose and compassion, can make a significant difference in the lives of those affected by bowel cancer. Brecongate Projects Ltd, through their dedication to this cause, has not only raised funds but has also created lasting memories and a sense of accomplishment that will resonate with all those involved.
