All we want for
We’ve all been really good boys and girls at the Children’s Hospital
for Wales this year, so we’ve made a wish list of presents we’d like
this Christmas.
We love playing because it’s fun and helps us forget that we’re sick,
so please may we have some toys, games and DVD’s in our Christmas
stocking for the playrooms and the therapy rooms.
Also all the doctors and nurses have looked after us really well so we’d
like to add a present to the wish list for them; they would really like
a children’s hydrotherapy pool so that the 500 children a year who
miss out now can have treatment to help them get better.
Donating is really easy, visit , text HOHO11
£5 to 70070 or call 029 2033 5016.
Merry Christmas!
Lots of love, all the boys and girls at the
Children’s Hospital for Wales.

Barry Sets
Sail For
Barry Chamblain is three
months into his sail around
the world and aims to raise as
much money as possible for his
wife’s tribute fund held with the
Noah’s Ark Appeal. We spoke
to Barry before he left and this
is his story:
“Sailing has been one of my
passions since I was a child, and
like many who harbour dreams,
one of mine was to take on a
real challenge under sail. When
I first met my late wife in 2007,
half way up the Atlas Mountains
in Morocco; it soon became
apparent that “challenges” was
one of the many passions we
shared. Beca regularly engaged
in physical activity, from cycling
to running and sought regular
opportunities to raise money
for charities. She also enjoyed
sailing, and still holds the top
speed ever set on my sailing
Issue 26, Autumn 2011
Now, I am realising my
dream - in difficult personal
circumstances, but I know Beca
would be supportive. Like her, I
want to maximise the potential
of racing under sail, this time
around the world, and add
to the £20,000 that has been
raised, in her memory, for the
Noah’s Ark Appeal.
The Clipper Round the World
Yacht Race was conceived by
Sir Robin Knox-Johnston to
give individuals from all walks
of life and a wide variety of
backgrounds, the opportunity
to experience the challenge
of ocean racing, and embark
on the adventure of a lifetime.
What an experience!!! We will
be members of a unique group,
smaller in number than those
who have climbed Everest!
Setting off from the Solent on
July 31st, we will sail and race
over 40,000 miles. If all goes
well, I’ll be back in the Solent on
22nd July 2012. The Noah’s Ark
Appeal will benefit financially,
and my passion will have been
fulfilled – for now!
My ambition now is to complete
the challenge and in doing so,
swell her tribute fund to enable
the Noah’s Ark Appeal to
continue its challenging work
in support of the Children’s
Hospital of Wales.”
Over the years, Tribute
Funds created in memory
of loved ones have proved
vital to our work towards
a world-class Children’s
Hospital for Wales.

creating a fund, please

makes a Splash
Carys Thomas a 12 year-old from
Newpor t, Pembrokeshire, has
made a big splash in the open sea
swimming world in aid of the Noah’s
Ark Appeal. The young star set
herself the challenge to swim ‘cwm
to cwm’.
She completed the 2.5mile swim
from Cwm Newpor t to Cwm yr
Eglwys in August. Carys said; “It
star ted as a personal challenge”
however after reading about the
Splish Splash Splosh campaign
she decided to seek sponsorship;
“I chose the Noah’s Ark Appeal

Challenging Channel
As we told you in the last issue, Geraint
from Llanishen, Cardiff aimed to swim from
Penarth to Western Super-Mare as part of
our Splish Splash Splosh. On Wednesday
24th August despite bad weather conditions
Geraint set off on his challenge; he faced his
ultimate fear by trying to swim the open
water but fierce tides meant he missed
his final destination – and ended
up swimming further than he
realised I wasn’t going to make it so decided
to turn back.”
Geraint still raised a fantastic £500 and has
vowed to give the swim another go next
year. He said; “I’ve decided to learn from
this year and I will definitely do it again next
Geraint’s family were there to
cheer him on from the boat which
was kindly donated by Phat Cat

An Eventful Summer
This summer the Noah’s
Ark Appeal had a fantastic
time at the Glanusk Estate
in Crickhowell.The Estate
is owned and run by the
Legge-Bourke family who
chose the Noah’s Ark
Appeal as their Charity of
the Year for 2011.
When Serena Legge-Bourke
was born in 2008, she had
a condition that affects 1 in
20,000 new born babies called
laryngomalacia. In Serena’s
case it was severe, affecting her
eating and breathing; leading
to her being tube fed for eight
months and undergoing three
major operations. It is thanks
to the doctors, nurses and
consultants at the Children’s
Hospital for Wales, that she is
a happy and healthy three year
old today.
At the Glanusk International
Horse Trials and Country Fair
Serena’s mother, Iona got back
in the saddle after 25 years
to undertake a challenge for
the Noah’s Ark Appeal. On
the final day of this event Iona
competed against experienced
professionals in dressage, cross
country and show jumping.
Charlotte Church, Max Boyce
and the Aber Valley male voice
choir joined us at the Glanusk
International Polo match
between Wales and Ireland another fantastic event on the
summer calendar.
Finishing the season with a stall
at Greenman festival we are
pleased to say that thousands
of pounds have been raised for
the Noah’s Ark Appeal from
the tremendous support from
the Glanusk Estate.

it’s become a Champion event!
