Annual Sponsored Walk - Saturday 8th July 2023
2 July 2023
On Saturday 8th July, our annual sponsored walk takes place from Cantref back to Merthyr, arriving at the ground prior to the opening pre-season friendly against Porthmadog, which kicks off at 2pm.
This year the walk will be raising funds for Andy’s Man Club and the Alzheimer's Society. Two very worthy causes and any financial contributions to support the walkers would be greatly appreciated by both organisations.
The walkers are invited to assemble at Penydarren Park by 8:30am on Saturday morning, prior to volunteer drivers transporting all of the walkers to the start point.
The group will walk via the gap behind Pen Y Fan down past the Neuadd reservoirs towards Pontsticill (there’ll of course be the traditional pint for the walkers waiting at the Pant Cad Ifor Inn) and then down into Merthyr Tydfil town to reach their goal at Penydarren Park.
There will also be collection buckets available for fans attending the pre-season game against Porthmadog at the ground from 2pm on Saturday.
Inspiration for the choices of charity was provided by Vicki McClure for her ongoing support of dementia charities and also Andy’s Man Club in memory of our friend Ceri Collins.
Donations can be made directly to the charities via the following links:
All Merthyr Town fans are invited to participate in the walk, whether for all or part of the journey. Volunteers are also sought to provide transport and support to the walkers on Saturday.
