Powys Automobile Club supports cancer charity with £3,000 donation
A charity in LLANDRINDOD Wells has been revived thanks to a generous donation from a local sports club.
Llandrindod Wells & District Motor Club has donated Â£3,000 to cancer charity Bracken Trust.
The members raised funds through the success of a charity event held in September 2021, in which more than 190 runners participated.
This test included a total of 30 marked sections, all contested off-road, over a challenging 25-mile lap. Participants in this event have seen riders come from all over the country to ride and have proven to be so successful that the feedback received means they are likely planning a return trip in 2022 when the event returns later in the year. .
The success of this event saw the club donate a significant Â£3,000 to their chosen charity, the Bracken Trust, the Llandrindod-based cancer support center that does so much good work locally.
Runners also dug deep into their pockets to buy homemade cakes and coffee, which increased the amount the club was able to donate.
“A big thank you to Llandrindod Wells & District Motor Club for this incredible amount of money,” said Jayne Griffiths, the Bracken Trust’s new fundraising manager.
The Llandrindod Wells & District Motor Club was set up in early 2019 with the aim of running test events not only for adult drivers in Mid Wales and surrounding counties but also to develop and to attract young pilots to this sport.
The club runs four youth events throughout the season and is a host club for the Welsh Motorcycle Federation’s Welsh Youth Championship rounds.
The club also runs four adult events where youngsters can also ride with their final at the Fforest Fields Long Lap Charity Trial held at the campsite, between Llandrindod and Builth Wells, in September.
The club initially raised Â£2,000 for the Bracken Trust in 2019.
Anyone interested in joining the club in 2022, as a driver or friend, should call Sian or Gary King on 07723 015 287 or email [email protected]
