E.G. LEWIS GROUP TO WEAR RED FOR WALES AND VELINDRE

13 NOVEMBER 2018 09:00

E.G. Lewis Group are delighted to announce that we will participate in the Wear Red for Wales and Velindre campaign on Friday 1st February, 2019.

The aim of the campaign is to show support for Wales ahead of their Six Nations campaign and to raise vital funds for Velindre - Wales’s Premier Cancer Centre.

Velindre’s 2018 Wear Red for Wales and Velindre campaign was a huge success with hundreds of schools, businesses and individuals painting Wales Red and raising over £70,000.

E.G. Lewis Group announced Velindre Cancer Centre as their official charity partner for 2018/19, which commenced on Monday 3rd September, 2018.

The partnership will see E.G. Lewis Group engage in numerous fundraising events and activities over the next 12 months to raise vital funds for the Cancer Centre.

The money raised from E.G Lewis’s fundraising will be used to ensure the best possible support is offered to every patient, their families and carers dealing with cancer. It will help Velindre to fund ground breaking research, specialist equipment, and new developments so our staff have access to the most up to date training and techniques available.

E.G. Lewis Group employees will then look to wear something red on Friday 1st February, when Wales take on France at the Stade de France, and donate a minimum of £1.00 to Velindre as part of the campaign.
