Royal Welsh Show

The Prostate Cymru team travelled to the largest agricultural show in Europe as part of the charity’s summer roadshow, raising awareness of prostate diseases across Wales. The Royal Welsh Show in Llanelwedd, Builth Wells took place from Monday 23rd July to Thursday 26th July. The popular show is the pinnacle event of the British agricultural calendar.

The team, whose stand was next to the charity’s sponsors and proud supporters Dunraven Windows, spoke to over 1000 people during the four days of the busy show. It was a great opportunity to raise awareness amongst the farming community in Mid Wales and the larger national farming community who had travelled to the show. High profile visits to the show included Prime Minister Theresa May who was given a Prostate Cymru wristband and pin badge as she passed the stand.

Enjoying mostly fine weather over the four days the team included awareness volunteers Ian Norton and Dai John, Chief Executive Tina Tew, Community and Sports Officer Chris Leyshon and Marketing and Events Assistant Owen Pugsley. Urology nurse Gaynor Newton was on hand on the Monday to offer advice about prostate issues while ambassador and weatherman Chris Jones popped over from the S4C tent to help out on the Wednesday and Thursday.
