A Douglas Stafford team member has begun his fundraising campaign to take part in Velindre’s Great Wall of China Trek!

Ryan Tout will be completing the incredible five-day journey across China’s iconic wall in May 2020 to raise money for Velindre, Wales’ premier cancer centre. He will be completing the trek with his friend Oliver Greenham, and they will both be accompanying a group of 40 fundraisers; “We’re joining the Great Wall of China Trek for an exciting yet challenging adventure, where we’ll be walking, climbing, and probably falling over, all in the name of charity!”

They will also be joined by one of the Patrons of Velindre; Welsh comedian, Rhod Gilbert!

To take part in this incredible journey, Ryan and Oliver must both raise £4,000 and they have begun their fundraising campaign to hit their target. From bucket collections, quiz nights, raffles to their own forthcoming film festival (which they will begin promoting next month), Ryan and Oliver are hopeful they can reach their target for next May. Ryan has been sporting a Velindre green wristband to raise awareness, as well as selling them for £1 donations.

As Wales’ premier cancer centre, Velindre provides treatment, care and support to patients, their families. As well as ensuring the best care and support, the money raised through fundraising is used to support projects over and above those provided by the NHS, including groundbreaking research, specialist equipment, nurses, staff training, and much more.

“Like any fundraiser, we heavily rely on extreme generosity and donations, so any contributions made will be deeply appreciated by the both of us and we will never be able to thank you enough!”
