Your entry fee only contributes towards the organisational costs of our Walk The Wye event. We ask that all participants raise some sponsorship money in support of breast cancer research.
Please invite your friends and colleagues to sponsor you. Sponsorship forms will be sent to every participant.
If you prefer, your friends and colleagues can sponsor you ONLINE.
Please click on the following link for ONLINE SPONSORSHIP details, where you can set up your own sponsorship web page.
“Walk The Wye” is a sponsored walking event which is raising funds for charity. The total amount raised by this event will be split, with 75% going to the Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff and the remaining 25% going to other charitable causes supported by the Rotary Clubs of Monmouth, Chepstow and Ross on Wye.
There is no minimum sponsorship target for each participant, but if every walker raises even a small amount of sponsorship, it will add up to a very significant sum for breast cancer research. Supporting breast cancer research is a very worthwhile cause.
We can increase the amount that you receive in sponsorship by 25% by claiming GIFT AID from HMRC, at no cost to yourself, or the people who sponsor you, provided that they are UK income tax payers.
To enable us to claim the GIFT AID , please enter the first name, surname, and home address, details of eligible sponsors, on the sponsorship form. Tick the “GIFT AID” box, and send the completed form to “Walk The Wye” Secretary, Pete Walters, The Plain, Pen y fan, Monmouth NP25 4QY, with your total sponsorship money.
In 2017, Walk The Wye raised £13,726 and we are hoping to raise a similar amount in 2018. This would take the total raised for breast cancer research, by our “Walk The Wye” event, to over £100,000
If you would like an extra sponsorship form, please telephone Pete Walters on 01600 860399.
