The celebrations we had planned for our 30th wedding anniversary on October 27th 2020 are on hold for now so we’ve decided to mark this occasion by signing up to “Take a Walk in My Shoes” – TEAM DANBER is our son Alex & his partner Hayley, our son Lewys & his partner Sasha, our daughter Carys and her husband Dai and my wife Catrin and I.

We will be walking 10,000 steps each a day and will log these on our phones,  it’s a great way to keep active during lockdown – we just hope the weather is kind to us.

Please support us if you can, the money raised will help City Hospice continue to deliver their exceptional standards of care”

Daisy Magill , Fundraising and Events Coordinator said:

Thank you so much to TEAM DANBER for signing up to “Take a Walk in My Shoes” it’s lovely to see a family do this challenge together. We are so pleased that we can be there for you all during this time.
