In February, Anthony was a member of a large group that trekked along the Helambu Valley north of Kathmandu, Nepal for 55 miles. The group walked amongst the many hills and villages that were devastated by the 2015 earthquake when nearly 9,000 people lost their lives.

Anthony and friends (including his old school friend from Carmarthen, Rhod Gilbert; and Derek ‘Weatherman’ Brockway) spent five days trekking through the spectacular Himalayan scenery. As a result, the magnificent sum of over £250,000 was raised for the Cancer Centre that every year treats over 5,000 new referrals and around 50,000 outpatients.

 

On Saturday 16th March, Rhod & Anthony have organised a sell-out fund raising Comedy Quiz in Tenby and it is expected that a further £10,000 will be raised for an extremely worthwhile cause.
