Charity Walk

Iago ap Steffan (Llywydd Myfywyr Plaid Cymru Students Aberystwyth and West Wales Representative)

A big huge thank you to everyone that supported Myfywyr Plaid Cymru Students Aberystwyth in the charity walk on Saturday. A massive well done to Liam, Jeff, Owain, Michaela and myself for completing the walk.
The walk was in aid of Beacon of Hope (who takes care of people with terminal illnesses) and Wales Air Ambulance; two very important and vital charities. In terms of how much we have far it has reached over £300!!! Plenty more to collect and every penny, I'm sure, will be very much appreciated by the organisations.
It was a difficult but fun walk. We carried on through strong winds, heavy rain, bitter cold and darkness along the coastal path from Aberystwyth to Aberaeron. Including the lunch break in Llanon; it took us 10 hours and 20 minutes to reach our destination. Still feeling the strain today, but feeling good that it was all for a good cause.
On a final note: as the future of Cymru, we need to remember that politics, although is important, we must still remember that looking after each other and helping others who are most vulnerable in society is our priority...never forget our old community spirit!
