Call to celebrate all things Welsh

First published in News

A LEADING charity is calling on the people of Gwent to celebrate Wales and Welshness during ‘Big Welsh Month’ throughout March.

Age Cymru Gwent is organising a fun-filled month to raise funds to support its work with older people.

Eileen Powell, executive director of Age Cymru Gwent, said: “We’re asking the people of Gwent to get involved, celebrate Wales and everything that’s Welsh, and have fun while helping Age Cymru Gwent to help older people across Gwent.

“Big Welsh Month is a great way of bringing everyone together to celebrate the diversity of Wales and we’re all very excited by it.”

There are many ways to get involved with Big Welsh Month, with suggestions including challenging friends to a Welsh cake bake-off; buying and wearing an Age Cymru leek or holding a Welsh-themed quiz night.

For a fundraising pack, call Age Cymru Gwent on 01633 763330 or send an email to ho@agecymrugwent.org, or call into the Newport office at Age Cymru Gwent, 12 Baneswell Road, Newport NP20 4BP, to contribute.

It would appear not. Another charity for me to walk past next time they shake a tin in my direction.

Looking forward to the 'all things welsh' celebration. Especially looking forward to the marathon race between the MATE's (moaning about the English'ers) and the 'MAWL's (moaning about the Welsh language'ers)

Age Cmru is a worthy charity, the anti-welshers here are probably ideal candidates for Age Cymru as they are all whining old ****, they can look on it as an investment. I'm no charity supporter myself, but attacking Wales again through its older and needy population seems a new low to me... Is there anyone they wan't attack ?

If we put an end to WAG. We would have enough money to fund our NHS, Education, Social Services and we could even give a few millions to age Cymru!
Thereby giving an end to this ' vacuous nationalist tripe'
