Huw and Carys were jointly awarded with the joint fundraiser and sports award at the ‘Yorkshire Children of Courage and Achievement Awards’ dinner at Harrogate on Thursday 28th October. Sam Bellas and Heather Smith were presented with the award as Carys was on school sports trip in Barcelona. Heather and Sam said they were ‘honoured’ to receive the award on behalf of Huw and Carys at a positive yet emotional evening.
As part of his school work in his last year at Upperthong Junior School, Huw had to write a diary of what he did in the October half term holiday. So we go back to October 2006, Huw was in year 6 and was nearly 11.
Huwie’s original spelling and grammar have been left 🙂
Memories of when Huw met the Welsh rugby team in 2010 as Wales prepare for the Rugby World Cup semi final
Huw’s Uncle Steve knows Jamie Roberts the Wales (and British Lions) Centre, and his family. On 13th February 2010 they got Huw, Cousin Doug and Nick tickets to see Wales vs Scotland at the Millenium Stadium and we watched the game with Jamie’s parents. Huw and Doug met the Welsh players afterwards 🙂
It’s such a meaningful song and was performed beautifully by Sam Bellas and Hayley Diamond. Huw loved Hayley and Sam.
Their performance on 25th March was recorded and you can listen to it here on YouTube.
Thanks Hayley and Sam ♥ ♥
Congratulations to Andy & Steve who finished the marathon at Palma, Mallorca in personal best times!
Congratulations to Steve Taylor and Andy Ackroyd who completed the Palma (Mallorca) Marathon on October 16th. They both finished in under 4 hours achieving personal bests eventhough it was 27 degrees! Here is a pic of the 2 proud Yorkshire guys with their medals at the end.
A friend (Paula Moss) sent me this photo – she saw the writing when she was cycling in Italy at the same time as Gabz’s bike event recently – and she thought of Huw and the cycling at Farnley Tyas. Read more
