Awry Las recently thanked Michael and said “Diolch yn fawr iawn i Michael Kitt, sydd wedi bod yn casglu cardiau yn ystod ei driniaeth cemotherapi ar Uned Alaw. Am bob cerdyn a dderbyniwyd, rhoddodd Michael 10c tuag at gronfa Alaw. Mae Michael bellach wedi codi swm gwych o £170. Diolch, Michael – rydych chi’n garedig iawn ac yn hael iawn!
Michael Kitt from Anglesey, is well known to the staff at the Alaw Ward in Ysbyty Gwynedd as he’s been going for chemotherapy treatments since September 2020 and is now having weekly sessions. As he’s not able to open his charity shop in Holyhead which raises funds for 68 different charities, and “has a lot of spare time at home ” Michael has been working hard promoting his latest fundraising ideas.
As well as starting Facebook fundraising events for Cancer Research UK https://www.facebook.com/donate/858696128010260/225205382595968/ and for The Guide Dogs For The Blind Association UK https://www.facebook.com/donate/114937517159370/218836246566215/, Michael has been asking anyone who has any used postage stamps, used postcards with stamps left on them (new or old ) , horizon labels, stamp albums with stamps in, plus any other stamps and stamp collections to send them to him as he is collecting them for the bone cancer research trust charity.
As well as this Michael is also asking for Get Well cards, and over Christmas and his birthday he asked for Christmas and Birthday cards – for each card he recieves he has donates 10p towards the Awyr Las Fund https://www.facebook.com/awyrlascharity
Throughout Micheal’s gruelling treatment he continues to work had to raise funds for so many charities, but due to the Covid pandemic he is quite isolated and would really appreciate it if anyone would have the time to drop him a quick note along with any stamps, postcards etc that they may have. Michael said ” It would be nice if anybody would like to write to me to see how I’m doing with my treatment, and it would be nice to read your letters, it will stop me thinking about my cancer and I could get better a bit quicker. I’ve been having chemotherapy since 8/9/20 – please can you send all letters to , Michael Kitt ,c/o Awyr Las General Office, Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor, LL572PW. I will collect the letters every week and will read every one thank you very much. “
Please help Michael if you can – every penny, every stamp and every card helps to raise funds for these charities who’ve all been hit by the Pandemic with so many charity shops closing and events being cancelled.
Well done Michael and good luck!
