Seeking adrenaline junkies: Raise money for a worthy cause THE NOLAN CHARITY FUND

is organising a charity tandem skydive with Skydive Swansea on Sunday, April 2. The aim of the challenge is to raise money for the charity fund and help local causes throughout Wales with financial support. The ‘Fall for the Fund’ skydive is

open to anyone aged 16 or over and as long as you are fit and healthy, there is no upper age limit. There are 40 places available, with 20 for the morning dive and 20 jumping in the afternoon. To take part, skydivers will

need to raise a minimum of £320 in sponsorship. The cost of the charity skydive is paid out of the sponsorship money and the rest will go to the Nolan Charity Fund. The payment includes the instructor and third party insurance.

All that is required to book your tandem skydive is a £40 deposit. Talking about the charity’s first

fundraising event of 2017, Sarah Cleevely, Fundraising and Events Manager, said: “This is a great New Year’s resolution! This will be my second tandem skydive. It was a great experience first time around, but over way too quickly, so worth doing it again.

“For anyone taking part, you

simply have to raise a minimum of £320. £220 pays for your skydive and £100 will go to the Nolan Charity Fund. We hope that by taking on the challenge, people will raise lots of money for the charity.” The Nolan Charity Fund has

already supported Tenovus Cancer Care, Myrddin Special Unit, Paul Popham Fund, Plant Dewi, Nofio Sir

Gar, Raising Lolly for Evan and Oli, Diabetes UK Cymru and Kids Cancer Charity. The successful applicants that applied for funding in 2016 will be announced next month. The charity received almost 30 applications for financial support last year. The charity is aiming to raise

£36,000 from fundraising events this year, and the charity skydive follows the successful gala dinner held in December, which raised over £7,000. A zip glide at Parc y Scarlets in May is currently being planned, along with other exciting fundraising events and challenges. To book your tandem skydive by

February 20, contact Sarah Cleevely on 07966 426439 or email charity@ Also contact the charity if you would like to take part in any other fundraising events.

‘Surfing Pembrokeshire - The Early Years’: Reg Goddard presenting a cheque A LOCAL businessman-

come-surfer who was diagnosed with prostate cancer three years ago has published a book detailing his memoirs of surfing in Pembrokeshire. Reg Goddard, of Camrose, raised

an impressive £2,000 for Prostate Cymru after his book ‘Surfing Pembrokeshire – The Early Years’ sold out following publication. Described as

‘one of

Pembrokeshire’s best known characters’, Reg, along with his family, has ran several successful businesses in his time. An avid fan of outdoor sports as

well, his love of fishing, shooting and surfing saw him travel far and wide to pursue such hobbies. In particular, after surfing beaches

in Ireland, France and Pembrokeshire, Reg had always promised himself

Brownies’ Christmas Fayre, held at St Clements Church on Thursday, December 15. The cheque was presented to

Samantha Evans and Jenn Perrett, who said that the money would be going towards their new Rainbow

unit, starting this month for children aged between five and seven. As part of the Christmas Fayre,

the Brownies sang a number of Christmas songs while games, homemade crafts and festive refreshments were also on offer. The Brownies have also been

fundraising for their activities in the New Year and also their chosen charity, PATCH.

Surfer writes book following diagnosis

that one day he would write a book documenting his countless tales and experiences accumulated in his 30 years of surfing. When Reg was diagnosed with

prostate cancer three years ago, this acted as a catalyst and resulted in his finished book. The entire publication has now

been sold and Reg has generously donated all proceeds to Prostate Cymru. Some 2,500 Welshmen are

diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, with 550 sadly dying each year. Prostate Cymru works closely

with medical experts and aims to improve prostate health across Wales by helping to fund improved equipment and training of surgeons and other medical staff, and also by funding an ever growing awareness campaign.
