Paul Popham Charity Run

All year groups have been invited to take part in our annual event called the Paul Popham Fund Charity Run.  This will be held on Sunday 13th May 2018.


The Paul Popham Fund, Renal Support Wales, is based in Swansea and was founded March 2013 by family and friends of the late Paul ‘Wally’ Popham who suffered with renal failure for half his life with an enviable positive attitude.   His philosophy for life was to “believe in yourself”.  Sadly Paul lost his brave battle in October 2012.  In memory of him and to keep his legacy alive the fund has been set-up to support renal patients in Wales receive a better quality of life.
