Charities supported by light up events
At light up events we are part of the Achieving Fitness family. We love to support causes that promote health, medical improvements, activities that increase fitness and more.
We support our charity trust, the Achieving Fitness trust where we decide on where to allocate funds in the community.
We also partner with charities who we feel align with our values.
The partner charities are:
Cancer research Wales – United Kingdom – Registered charity No. 1167290
Cancer Research Wales funds cutting edge research in Wales into the early diagnosis, better treatment and preventatives of cancer. It’s world leading, and it’s local. We give hope to cancer patients and their families.
RMHC – Ronald McDonald House Charities
United Kingdom – Registered charity No. England and Wales (802047) and in Scotland (SC0407)
Ronald McDonald House Charities provide free accommodation for families who have children undergoing treatment in hospital. Much of the time, families will find themselves far away from home, friends and relatives so that they can stay with their child. At this very difficult and traumatic time in their lives, having a place to stay but still being able to be close to their child is of enormous importance. Ronald McDonald Houses are only built at hospitals with a specialist area of care, in the case of Cardiff, it is the neonatal unit. This will be the first Ronald McDonald House in Wales, so an exciting development for the charity!

Cardiff & Vale Health Charity is the official Charity supporting all the wards and departments of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (CAV UHB). With 9 hospitals, 17 health centres and 300+ separate funds, every penny you donate is spent by senior doctors and nurses to benefit our patients.
