Llan Round Challenge raises record £60,000

The third annual Llangollen Round Challenge scooped a record £60,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Big test for the event, staged on June 2 and 3, was to walk 35 miles over either one or two days.

But as the route included every summit around the Vale of Llangollen it was no stroll in the park.

Last time it was held in 2015 the event raised £45,000 for the cancer charity but this year’s walk topped that total by £15,000, thanks to the scores of walkers who came to take part from across Britain, from Dorset to East Anglia.
One of the organisers, Sandra Woodhall from Llangollen, said: “We have done amazingly well.

“We have now raised over £60,000 from the event which is fantastic.  Money is still coming in so hopefully it will creep up some more.

“I’d like to thank everyone who took part in the walk and the volunteers who helped with the organisation of the event.”
