City fan in Three Peaks Charity challenge

Last updated : 23 April 2004 By Michael Morris
City fan Paul Sawyer is taking part in the Three Peaks Challange on June 12th.

Paul works for Ty Hafan and will be raising money for the Children's Hospice.

The challenge involves running up and down Snowdon, Cader Idris and Pen Y Fan all in 15 hours. These are the three highest peaks in Wales.

Paul will be running with his son Dylan and friends Richard Clement and Rhys Parry.

Paul explains

I work for Ty Hafan which is the only children’s hospice in
Wales, in Sully near Barry. We offer respite, palliative and end of life care for over 300 families in Wales who have a child or children suffering from life limiting illnesses, which means they will die before reaching adulthood.

The care that Ty Hafan offers the families is free of charge, and to do this costs £2 million every year, the vast majority of which is raised from our various fundraising activities. We receive no funding from the statutory bodies

Ty Hafan offers a caring, warm, homely and therapeutic environment for sick children. Additionally we aim to offer specialised help to parents, the sick child and well siblings in a very sensitive and individual way through our Home Support Team.

Paul is looking for sponsorship. Can you help?
