 The Choir Cycle Team consisting of Gareth Edwards, Richard Lewis, Nigel Phillips,

Gerwyn Richards, Paul Hughes, Rob Morgan, and Melvin Thomas.

With Dafydd Cox and Roy Morris designated van drivers.

They endured a tough time between strong crosswinds and 27C heat, especially on Dartmoor Moors. They persevered and achieved their goal in raising money for Breast Cancer Care, and Breast Cancer Research. 

 

It was done in four stages, Lands End to Tavistock, Tavistock to Bridgewater, Bridgewater to Cardiff Gate, and Cardiff Gate to Whitland.

At Bridgewater, a Taf Valley Cycling Club member joined the cycle, Ollie Thomas. Other members joined in from Bridgend to Whitland.

A total of 16 cyclists, a welcome escort home to Whitland. Arriving back at the Fishers Arms, Whitland to a large crowd of family, friends, and choir members. Jayne Phillips welcomed her husband Nigel through the finish line.

An emotional reunion for all. Jayne is having treatment for Breast Cancer at the moment.

Up to October 2019 over £13,000 has been raised.

The fundraising efforts of choristers from Whitland Male Choir on behalf of Prostate Cymru received a boost on Easter Sunday when members of Côr Meibion Mynydd Mawr presented them with a donation from the proceeds of the choir’s successful 6 Nations Predictions competition.
“We run the competition every year and we were delighted to be able to donate £300 in support of the efforts of the Whitland choristers,” explained Mynydd Mawr choir chairman Wyn Edwards.
The Whitland choristers are cycling around Wales and visiting every choir that is taking part in the Festival of Massed Choirs at the Royal Albert Hall, London on Saturday, May 19. The aim of the cycle ride is to raise £3,000 for Prostate Cymru which is the nominated charity of the Welsh Association of Male Choirs who are the organisers of the event in the Royal Albert Hall.
The choristers will end their cycle ride at the steps of the Royal Albert Hall on Friday, May 18 when they expect to have reached their fundraising target and present their donation to Prostate Cymru.
