Charity skydivers raise over £1,500
Five dare-devils took up the challenge at the
beginning of the month and successfully
completed a tandem skydive with Skydive
Swansea over Swansea Bay.
Blessed with clear blue skies, all five jumpers left
the plane at 12,000ft, and after the 45-second
free-fall were safely back on the ground 5
minutes later.

Thank you to all our
kind sponsors who
have kindly donated
to our fundraising
events so far this
year. Without your
support we wouldn’t
be able to benefit so
many worthy causes
in Wales.

Cardiff Half Marathon – Sunday 1 October

The Nolan Charity Fund has 10 charity places
available in this year’s Cardiff Half Marathon on 1
October.
Run for the Nolan Charity Fund and we will pay
your registration fee.

This was the first dog walk for the charity, and
everyone that came along enjoyed the hour long
walk, stopping for a well-earned hot chocolate or
coffee at the end.
The Summer Charity Dog Walk will be in July.
Further details will be posted on social media and
the website in the coming weeks, but if you are
interested in taking part in this or future
fundraising walks, then email Sarah at the charity
on charity@nolanupvc.co.uk.

If you’d like to ‘Run for the Fund’, email

New charity website coming soon!
Our new website is currently under development.
We are working with Simon Lamble of Curious in
Carmarthen on the new site, who has kindly
donated his time to the charity to design and
develop the site, which we are very grateful for. It
is due to be launched next month and we will
feature it in our summer newsletter.
