Darren Phillips Memorial Walk

On Saturday July 16th before the first-team game against our friends Penlan AFC, there will be a charity walk from the Ynys Park to the Cymmer Refresh and back in aid of the Darren Phillips Memorial Just Giving campaign to raise money for Mental Health charities in the area.

The group will leave the Ynys at about 8am and will walk to the Cymmer Refresh and back, arriving at the Ynys Park again at around 1:30pm in time for kick-off and a few light refreshments. The walk is around 14 miles and is expected to take around 5 hours, with everyone encouraged to participate in the whole work, or just join us for a section.

The planned route

The expected times to join in are:

  • 8:00am – Ynys Park
  • 9:00am – Rhysling Car Park
  • 10:30am – Arrive Cymmer Refresh
  • 11:00am – Leave Cymmer Refresh
  • 12:30pm – Rhysling Car Park
  • 1:30pm – Arrive back at the Ynys Park

T-shirts are available for purchase to wear during the walk (or just to buy to show support), and £5 from every purchase goes directly to the Just Giving Campaign. You can find them on our Club Shop:
