Darth supports the Wales Air Ambulance service

The Wales Air Ambulance is the national air ambulance charity for glorious Cymru, and provides emergency air cover 365 days a year for those who face life-threatening situations. The charity is funded entirely by donations to raise the £millions each year needed to operate its three helicopters across the country.

We are proud to have chosen the Wales Air Ambulance as our charity for all our events. Aside from supporting the Bishopston, Gower and broader Welsh communities, we are also aware that we may one day need them during a challenge!

We raise tens of thousands of pounds a year, and were recently honoured by Prince Charles for our achievements! But it[‘s really you who does it. So:

  1. Runner fundraising – Each participant is encouraged to raise money through a fundraising page. If each runner raises £20 we will make a massive difference, so please do ask.
  2. Darth t-shirts – For each Darth t-shirt that we sell, £2 will be donated to the WAA.
  3. Raffle – During the evening event at the Darth we will be running a raffle with some great (and some not so great) prizes.
  4. Charity auction and buckets – As in previous events, there will be a charity auction with some great lots and buckets for your loose change

We’re honoured to be one of – presumably – few running clubs which has both an Artist-in-Residence and Poet-in-Residence.

Our Poet-in-Residence

He’s in this photo, but we haven’t yet secured a deal on his image rights. 
So a positive identification will follow in due course. 
As will his poetic workstream.
