Pushing ahead for charities!

Kind-hearted fundraisers in fancy dress will take to the streets on Saturday, March 29, 2014 to push a hospital bed from Pontypridd to Llantrisant, in aid of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Mayor’s Charity Appeal.

Mayor Cllr Ann Crimmings has chosen to support Guide Dogs Cymru, Macmillan Cancer Support (RCT) and Diabetes Peer Support for Children (RCT) during her year of office.

The fundraising team will leave the Municipal Buildings in Pontypridd at 10.30am, aiming to arrive at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital around 4.30pm. They will have collection buckets with them, and all proceeds from Operation Bed Push will go to the three charities.

Staff at the Hollybush Inn, Church Village, will be supporting the bed push on the day by providing refreshments free of charge.

Cllr Crimmings said: “One of my most pleasant roles as Mayor is helping to raise money for good causes - and I have chosen three charities to support during my year in office which are very personal to me. If you see the team en-route, please take the time to give them a donation.”

Donations to the Mayor’s Charity Appeal can also be made through a new secure online service. Please visit the Mayor's page if you would like to make a donation. Or if you have an idea for a fundraising event, please contact the Mayoral Office on 01443 494061.
