Richard Park made an emotional return to Ty Olwen with two of his ‘running’ friends to say thank you to the staff for the “unbelievable palliative care that my father received at Ty Olwen last August” and offer his support for the Evening Post Appeal. Richard decided he wanted to do something for “this marvelous charity” so he and a group of friends ran the Llanelli Half Marathon which was no mean feat for Richard as he says he is not exactly a ‘natural’ athlete. They have raised to date over £3250, which is still rising, and have also had some matched funding from Wales and the West Utilities, Richards employers. After the event Richard said-

“Well – we survived!!! There were some fantastic times by us all on Sunday, and personally I owe a massive debt of gratitude to Giles, Gina and Phil who literally pulled me through the final mile when I thought the wall in front of me wouldn’t stop getting higher!!!

Everyone performed so well and It was an amazing day! We’ve raised far more than we ever could of imagined, but we are still after more of your money – so please carry on giving whatever you can afford!!!”

One of his Dad’s best friends also ran a fund raising event in Sherwood’s in Morriston and raised £3000.
