Callum’s one tonne challenge for charity

Fitness instructor and Gym owner Calum Stronach is testing his strength in aid of St David’s Hospice. On Sunday (8th) Calum and 50 members of the NW1gym, Llandudno will carry 1000kg between them around town’s Great Orme.
The six mile walk starting on the promenade at 10am, marks the beginning of a number of fundraising events over the next 12 months, to raise as much money and awareness for St David’s Hospice and other cancer charities.
Calum’s heavy-weight challenge is specifically for the adult hospice and is to honour his grandmother, Aileen Matthews, 70, who died in the care of St David’s March 2015.
Calum said:
“St David’s Hospice has personal meaning to me because they did such an amazing job with the care they gave to my Nan in her last days.
“Not only to my Nan, my mum, myself and the rest of family. They were nothing short of incredible. As well as that, it is a charity that is doing such great work right on our doorstep and I want to raise awareness of that.”
“I am always thinking of challenges that I can put myself through and challenges that are going to bring our community together. I love the idea of making use of the great surroundings that we have on our doorstep, so it’s basically the result of my imagination.”
The care services at St David’s Hospice are free of charge, although it costs over £3million each year to deliver. The majority of this comes from community fundraising such as Calum’s efforts.
James Wilde, Community Fundraiser said:
“This really is a unique challenge and a great way to kick off National Hospice Care Week which is a week of celebration and action, which helps to change people’s perceptions of hospice care.”
