Fundraiser:

My name is Phil and for many years now I’ve wanted to take on the Carmarthenshire coastal path (my home county) by hiking all 68 miles, from Amroth to Llanelli.

I have been collaborating with the Llanelli Deaf Centre to take on the challenge.

And I’m aiming to do it all within 2 days to raise money for the Llanelli Deaf Centre and the Deaf youth.

I’ve had a lot of experience over the years hiking the coastal path of Wales and it’s mountains as a qualified Mountain Leader. However, I have to admit that this will be the hardest challenge I’ve ever attempted, but with passion and pride for such a great cause I look forward to taking it on!

Donations of any size are truly appreciated, and you are all welcome to come and join me for the last few miles to the finish line. We will keep you posted on my location.

A donation can be made directly to our club account . We do have a face bookpaying link but sadly it doesn’t seem to be working. So if you have tried and failed we are so sorry please can you donate via our bank just reference it Phil.

Thank you all so much and please wish me luck. Donate using the following details.
