BIKE RIDE TO PARIS

Let’s raise some money to buy special playground equipment for our residents

Martha Trust (Hereford) was established in 1996, as a registered charity, to provide lifelong and respite care for young people with profound intellectual and physical disabilities and although based in Hereford, it is unique in that there are no geographical boundaries or age limits to its care provision. 

All residents are completely dependent on others for their every need and in a place that they can call “home”, are given constant loving attention, allowing and encouraging them to develop to their full potential, and giving life experiences that most of us take for granted. 

As such, let’s get together and raise some money for buying some safe play playground equipment to enable these young people to simply “have a go on a swing”. 

Why not sponsor Andy and his ‘Lifeplay’ team who are cycling from Hereford to Paris to help in this cause. You can donate at virgin money giving by going directly to http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/LifePlay or searching

for ‘faichney’ direct from the virgin money giving site (http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com) or by simply filling in a sponsor form.

Support Natalie & Alisha who are doing the 100k Trek Fest on the 4th - 5th June 2016

The girls will leave the Event Village with the 50k and 100k routes and spend some time on the Taff Trail next to the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal. They will walk along the canal until we enter Talybont Forest followed by the Taf Fechan Forest. As they exit the forest they begin their ascent to Fan y Big. After summiting there, they will ascend a bit further to summit Pen Y Fan. From here, they will descend and head in a different direction to the 50k route. They will re-join the Taff Trail and follow this passed Beacons, Cantref and Llwyn-on Reservoir. After this, they will walk through the more built up area of Merthyr Tydfil. Staying on the Taff Trail they will then leave Merthyr Tydfil and head back in the Taf Fechan Forest. Their arrival to the event Village will be back through the Talybont Forest and along the canal. Before they reach Brecon they will join quiet county roads for their return to the event Village. 

If you would like to show your support, the girls have a 'virgin money giving page'; please use the link below.
