All-Wales Cycle Challenge Helps Fund WAA's Missions

Two Coleg Cambria staff are cycling across Wales to raise donations for a Welsh helicopter charity, to fund its lifesaving missions.

Ian Moss and Jay Jackson will be setting off on a gruelling cycle ride on April 27, taking them from Caernarfon to Llanelli in 24 hours.

The college staff will set off from WAA’s North Wales Airbase in Caernarfon Airbase, heading through the Welsh countryside, to be greeted by the crew at the charity’s Welshpool airbase.

Ian and Jay will set off on the second part of their journey at 6am on April 28, crossing the country to reach Wales Air Ambulance’s Dafen airbase by the evening.

The sponsored cycle has already raised over £1,800, with more donations rolling in every hour.

Ian and Jay set up their cross-country cycling challenge as part of Coleg Cambria’s fundraising, as the college nominated Wales Air Ambulance as their chosen charity.

This year Coleg Cambria has raised thousands for WAA, with staff taking on challenges and hosting fundraisers to generate donations for the Welsh helicopter charity.

Anna Evans, WAA Corporate Manager, said: “As a charity we rely on support from volunteers, fundraisers and cooperate supporters to raise the £6.5 million needed every year to fund our services.

“The support from Coleg Cambria staff has been outstanding, we cannot thank them enough for their kind support.

“Ian and Jay’s fundraising has already raised enough to fund more than one lifesaving mission across Wales.

“We wish them all the best on their cycle, and the crew are looking forward to seeing them at our airbases along the way.”
