Hello Clogau Blog readers,

Can I ask for a few minutes of your time to tell you a little about the half marathon I’m doing next month for charity, and to encourage you to sponsor me for such a worthy cause.

As Managing Director, here at Clogau Gold, my responsibilities involve me spending a large proportion of my life working and being away from home. This has, over time, made me realise that family life is far too important to keep just for holidays.

Clogau has an on-going relationship with local charity, Ty Gobaith (part of Hope House children’s hospices), it offers regular periods of respite care to more than 70 terminally ill children and their families who live in the North Wales area.

Each time I visit Ty Gobaith I appreciate how tremendously fortunate I am to have a happy and healthy family. I have been personally touched by this charity and am motivated to do something in return for the heroes who work at Ty Gobaith and the many children and their families who benefit from the great work that goes on there.

I saw the Conwy Half-Marathon as a perfect way to raise money, and to get personally fit at the same time. Ty Gobaith is my sole inspiration when I fear failure both in the marathon and personally.

If you would like to support this charity, please sponsor me through my JustGiving account, just click on the button below. It’s the most efficient way to donate – I raise more money, while saving time and cutting costs for the charity. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure – they keep your details safe and send your donation directly to Ty Gobaith.


Also, don’t forget Ty Gobaith’s annual Santa Run along Llandudno promenade, sponsored by Clogau Gold. Why not join in this year – there were nearly 700 Santa’s last December, let’s break a new record.

Thank you for your time.

Best Wishes,

Ben Roberts
Managing Director
