Message from Jonathan Davies

Having been President of Velindre Fundraising since 2008, we have worked tirelessly to raise awareness and funds to support cancer patients and their families at Velindre Cancer Centre and the wider community across Wales.

Now I live back down West, I want to extend my support to the people of the South West. Last year I created the first ever ‘Jiffy’s Cancer 50 Challenge’ which was a bike ride from Cardiff to Swansea in aid of both Velindre and The South West Wales Cancer Fund. The event was a huge success and saw participants raise over £118,000 in sponsorship which was split evenly between both charities.

This year we are back for a second year and are going BIGGER by inviting 1000 riders to join us… that’s double the spaces that were available last year!

Jiffy’s Cancer 50 Challenge is a fun bike ride that will take place on Sunday 4th September 2022. It’s 50 miles, £50 to enter, which includes a cycling jersey, and all I ask is that people raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship, more if you can, that will be split equally between both charities.

So grab your bike, sign up today, and start raising funds for two great charities in South Wales that are very close to my heart.

The South West Wales Cancer Fund supports the South West Wales Cancer Centre based in Singleton Hospital, Swansea, which is the second largest non-surgical Cancer Centre in Wales.

The Cancer Centre treats patients from Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, across all of West Wales and as far North as Aberystwyth and patients further east to Bridgend with lifesaving chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments.

We raise vital funds for Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy, Ward 12, the Cancer Institute and Seaview Hostel for travelling patients from as far as Aberystwyth.

Our focus is on patient care and comfort, along with additional specialist equipment. We also support specialist training for our doctors, nurses and all health care staff.

“When I was diagnosed with breast cancer it was the scariest time of my life.  But equally, as strange as it may sound, it was also one of the most special times.  The support I had around me was amazing.  Without the South West Wales Cancer Centre, I wouldn’t be alive today.  The staff go over and above to support you and look after you.  Fundraising for the cancer centre is so important, as the funds raised will save other people’s lives like it saved my life.”  Claire Hopkin, former patient.

The South West Wales Cancer fund is one of the 265 funds looked after by Swansea Bay Health Charity, you can find us on

Velindre, the Hospital of Hope, has been providing specialist treatment and supportive care to cancer patients in Wales for over 60 years.

Money raised for Velindre is used to ensure the best possible support is offered to every patient, their families and carers dealing with cancer. 

It allows us to fund specialist nurses who are fundamental to a patient’s experience, implement projects to improve the physical environment for a patient, such as our gardens, the Family & Children’s Room and so much more.

It enables us to offer better support through complex treatment pathways, earlier access to cutting edge treatments, research into new treatments, purchase specialist equipment and ensure our staff have access to the most up to date training and techniques available. 

It really is difficult to overstate the difference fundraising makes here at Velindre, but the benefits are invaluable. 

“Velindre, I had feared. My first visit was terrifying but I soon realised that it’s a miraculous place, packed with brilliant people making the abnormal normal, the most horrible treatment bearable. I knew from the very start that I wanted to give back to these precious angels that hold so many of our dreams. At Velindre they hold your hand and tell you straight, they put a blanket around you, and give you the tools to tell your kids. Velindre is forever in my heart, and I will always be fundraising for them, with them and shouting about them. They rock!!”  Angharad Underwood, former patient
