Llandovery launch their WaW status with a Walk for Life
Llandovery thought that it would be a fitting way to mark their newly-acquired WaW status by holding their very first community event in favour of the Kidney Wales Foundation. Indeed, it is one of the Charities which the Welsh RFU have chosen to support, and Leigh Halfpenny, the Wales full-back and Player of the Six Nations Tournament 2013, is the public face of their involvement.
Mrs. Dorothy Burgess, a Llandovery Town Councillor and herself a former nurse, looked after most of the administrative arrangements, while the Llandovery Walkers are Welcome planned the route, and organised the marshals. It was a very successful day and received very good coverage in the local press, namely the Carmarthen Journal and the Towy Valley Guardian. With sponsorship forms and contributions still coming in, we now await to find out how much was raised for the Kidney Wales Foundation.
