On the Friday night of this years Gathering at Venue Cymru in Llandudno, North Wales, Mike Peters presented a cheque for £40,000 to Dr David Edwards for the Alaw Unit at Ysbyty Gwynedd and the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre in North Wales.
Dr. Edwards who is the Haematologist responsible for keeping Mike Peters alive through 18 years since he was first diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and again with Leukaemia in 2005. Mike presented the cheque to Dr. Edwards on stage during the gig and then invited him to join the band on guitar for the charity’s theme song, Love Hope and Strength.
The money will go towards improvements at the Alaw unit. All the funds were donated and raised through the Love Hope Strength Foundation UK (formed by Mike Peters and his wife Jules in 2007) during the annual Snowdon Rocks event which is populated by local supporters and Alarm fans who follow Mike to the top for an acoustic concert on the summit once a year.
