£33,530 boost for cancer fight from Caerphilly Megaday fundraiser


Caerphilly Town Deputy Mayor Mike Prew (centre) helped present a cheque for £33,530 to Velindre Cancer Centre at a special ceremony at the Cardiff hospital (May 16th).

The money represented the proceeds of the Caerphilly Megaday event last year. Caerphilly Town Council contributes to funding the marquee on the day. 

Mike Prew, a founder member of Megaday and Plaid Cymru member for Tonyfelin Ward on the Town Council, said: “I am very proud to be part of the huge Megaday team which has raised so much money over many years for the Cancer Centre at Velindre Hospital.

“It’s a significant sum and will help make a difference. I am looking forward to  another successful Megaday musical event on August 26th.”
