Welsh rugby stars and TV pundits Jonathan Davies and Martyn Williams were given a great send-off by Itec for their US cycle ride in aid of Velindre Hospital.
Thanks to staff fund-raising efforts throughout the year and a matching sum from the company, Itec was able to hand over a handsome cheque for £7,304 as the charity team left for the airport.
Jiffy and Nugget, as Jonathan and Martyn – both MBEs – are known, were off to take part in the East Coast Bike Challenge, covering 515km from Boston to New York in five days – their second such jaunt for Velindre.
Itec Joint Managing Director Ceri Murphy and Development Director Joel Williams were joined by First Minister Carwyn Jones, fresh from the Nato summit, for the cheque handover. Ceri said “All credit to the staff, once again, for their caring approach.”
