We have finally decided to take the plunge and add a blog to the site.
We always wanted an easy way to share information with visitors and we are very
excited to start this journey. Keep coming back to this site and check for
updates right here on the blog
We had a massive 69 climbers who achieved the full
10 climbs with a large number of people who did over 5 climbs. The weather was
awful but the spirit at the whole event remained incredibly high! The
fundraising efforts have meant that £50,000 has been handed over to LATCH and
we will be able to update you very shortly on how that will be spent so watch
this space. Put it this way, the project LATCH have in mind will be a first in
Europe and this is all down to you!
Our first awards ceremony went very well with
awards for climbers, volunteers, the fundraisers (sponsored by EE) and our
first Ten-Y-Fantastic recipients for those who showed true Ten Y Fan spirit –
well done to Danni, Emma, Gareth and of course young Lucy. We hope you had a great
night. Next year will be bigger, better and likely to involve an 80’s disco!!
Keep an eye on the website for more photos and videos of the night.
It is with great pleasure that we can formally
announce that Michael Sheen is ambassador for Ten Y Fan. Michael is a superb
role model for the event and is passionate about supporting local charities so
we couldn’t be happier to have him support the cause. Not only that but EE will
be our main sponsor moving forward as well. Allison and her team in Merthyr Tydfil
regularly support local charities and are keen to help Ten Y Fan. We are really
looking forward to a cracking 2017!
We hope you have some great memories from the event
and look forward to seeing you all again next year. The date for next year’s
event will be announced at some point in October and is likely to be held in
May next year as we need to avoid any blistering heat! We will also announce
the chosen charity that we would like to raise money for….could we generate
over £100,000 for next year….?!
See you soon and thank you again for a truly
memorable few months
