Rhondda learner goes the extra mile to give back to Cancer Centre


A college learner from the south Wales valleys has helped raise £12k for Velindre Cancer Centre after


taking part in a


fundraising trek across the ancient kingdom of Nepal in aid of the organisation. Eighteen-year-old Jake Phillips, from Miskin, Rhondda Cynon Taf, took part in a fi ve-day hike across mountainous and remote land in the region to raise money for the Centre. Taking on the challenge with his father, Simon, Jake wanted to thank the Centre for the outstanding support and treatment it had provided to a member of his family over the last year.


Joining 50 other trekkers for


the trip, the pair


spent 6-8 hours trekking through steep and rough conditions every single day. The engineering learner, who is


studying Jake Phillips raised 12k for Velindre Cancer Centre a


Level 3 Certifi cate in Engineering at Coleg y Cymoedd, found out about the trek through comedian Rhod Gilbert, who is a family friend and patron for the Velindre Cancer Centre. Speaking about his motivation to join the trek, Jake said: “Velindre provided amazing support for my family through a very diffi cult


time and we wanted to give something back to them for all of the hard work they do. When we learnt about the trek, we felt it was the perfect way to raise money for the Centre and to show how thankful we are.” To prepare themselves for the challenge lying ahead, Jake and Simon completed numerous treks in the months leading up to the trip away. That included visits to the Brecon Beacons, carrying out walks of various lengths and steepness, and climbing South Wales’


highest mountain, Pen Y Fan, several times. The pair also joined the gym to work on their fi tness, with a focus on improving their endurance.


Jake and his father have raised £12,000 for Velindre Cancer Centre, which will go towards funding the vital treatment that it provides for cancer patients. Jake now plans to participate in more trips organised by the centre and hopes to continue fundraising for cancer research.
