A sponsored cycle ride has been arranged in memory of Melanie Jones from Bangor, to raise money for Alaw Ward through the Awyr Las Charity.

‘Ride for Mel’ will take place on 26th July 2018 when the team of five men will cycle from Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor to the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, aiming to complete the 190 miles in just three days.

Mel, 34, who sadly lost her battle against bowel cancer earlier this year, spent a lot of time on Alaw Ward while she received treatments and she became very close to the amazing staff who were a great comfort to her and her family.

Friends will never forget Mel and how positive she remained despite her illness, they want people to remember the strong and positive woman she was, and who went through her illness and all her treatment with a smile on her face.

Mel was an inspiration, a loving wife, fantastic mother, special daughter, beautiful sister and a very great friend.

A just giving page has now been set up for anyone who wants to donate to this great cause.
