The WAAT4 Challenge held a Presentation Evening at Brecon Rugby Club on Wednesday November 18 and gave cheques to charities and organisations to the tune of £34,700. Brecon and Hay Dementia Supportive Community was one of the beneficiaries and here we see Rhiannon Davies receiving a cheque for £1500 from Gary Philpott, the founder.
The WAAT4 Challenge is a prestigious navigation event in Wales’ beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. Teams from all over the UK take part every year.
Its reputation is growing quickly and it features in the walking calendar for such events. In 2015 more than 500 competitors (including Rhiannon!) took part over either 30km or 40km Challenges which included South Wales’ highest peak - Pen y fan.
The event takes place on the third Saturday in June and has raised £200,000 for many good causes and charities.
A very big thank you to Gary, all the team, the trustees and sponsors for making it possible – and for supporting the vulnerable within our communities.
