Partnering with St David’s Hospice Care in Newport, we leapt at the chance to be headline sponsors of The Admiral City of Newport Half Marathon, the annual event that tours the historic features of Newport and Caerleon. We make no secret of our Welsh heritage and love a chance to give back to our local community. And our colleagues from South Wales love to get involved with the Newport Half too.
All the proceeds from the event go to supporting local hospice patients, with over £200,000 raised for charitable causes as a result of the hard work of the organisers, the volunteers, and of course, the runners.
Here are some of the charities and initiatives we’ve donated to, along with a bit about how they plan to use their donation.
