Walking to the Jubilee Tower on Moel Fammau 1,500 times - The final ascent will take
place Friday August 31st 2007 on what would have been Roy’s 75th birthday. To support
our research programme into Lung Cancer in Liverpool, David Snowdon-Jones is making
the effort for the love of Roy Castle, and needs your support.
2007 Special - The 1,500th ascent of Moel Fammau in aid of the Roy Castle Lung Cancer
Foundation - Will you help?
Over the many years passed, David has taken numerous walking parties into Snowdonia
and the Clwydian Hills and hopes to meet up with many friends on the day.
So the countdown of just 1 to reach his goal!
A book “For the Love of Roy” will be available at the Cherry Pie Inn, Melyn-y-Wern
to invite so many people to donate, sponsor, whatever to assist our research programme
in Liverpool. The research centre bears the name Roy, an epitaph for his life of
doing good and his service to mankind.
How it all started :
In 1995 on his 65th birthday, seeking another challenge for the purpose of raising
money for Roy’s cancer research Charity, David decided to walk 500 times to the Jubilee
Tower on Moel Fammau before his 70th birthday. However, the total of 500 was achieved
by his 68th birthday so the challenge was changed to 1,000. This figure was reached
by his 70th Birthday, Millennium year 2000 and raised many thousands of pounds. And
so it was decided another 500, to now make 1,500, to be reached by his 80th birthday
in May 2010. By November 2006, 1,400 was reached leaving the countdown of 100 to
The “marathon” culminated in the final walk (No. 1,500) to the Jubilee Tower on Moel
Fammau on Friday 31st August 2007 which would have been Roy's 75th birthday.
On behalf of the cause I should be glad to receive any donation you feel you can
make, however small. In this way we can all be part of the cure - if only for the
sake of our children. Thank you in anticipation.
