Galaxy Hot Chocolate £300

You can help us secure £300 by placing a vote online for us at Galaxy Hot chocolate.  It would make a huge difference to us and help us reach out to those living with asbestos related illnesses in Wales. We facilitate support group meetings in Cardiff and Pembrokeshire and we need funds to enable us to do this.

Many thanks to Sally on completing her 1000 mile bike ride from Lands End to John O’Groats on 13th August in loving memory of her uncle Paul Baldwin. We are deeply honoured to be remembered in this way as Paul, a truly stoic gentleman became one of our first enquiries having been diagnosed with the malignant cancer Mesothelioma, caused by asbestos exposure. It was a privilege to have known him and his wife Sue continues to support us through her voluntary work and as a Trustee to this day. Great stuff well done £1000 raised for AASC!

Berlin Marathon 29 September 2013 – Matthew ran it in memory of his Dad John – 3 hours 26 minutes!

“On 12 September 2013 my stepfather/ old man, John sadly passed away, after a 9 month battle with mesothelioma (asbestos related cancer).

There are not enough words to decribe how much he will be missed, he was the man who taught me to drive, helped me buy my first car (yes…that metro) inspired me to take holidays (his nickname was Judith….Wish you were here(!)) and was a shoulder to cry on in both rugby related (Welsh) and non rugby related matters.

In memory of John and the family members/friends who have cruelly been touched by cancer, I ran the Berlin Marathon on 29 September 2013.

Asbestos Awareness & Support Cymru (A.A.S.C) provided great help and support to John therefore please help me to give something back by donating through the following link – make a donation ”

Thanks Matthew  for having AASC as one of chosen charities.
