In December 2010, we gave an impressive send off for Richard as he embarked on his incredible challenge.

The Gala dinner was an enormous success, with over 200 guests dining, fantastic sponsors, a hugely popular auction with amazing prizes and was all hosted by TV star Gethin Jones and attended by inspiring sporting stars and welsh business people.

The event raised over £10,000 for the 737 Challenge which is raising funds in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The Welcome Home Gala Dinner will begin at 6.30pm with a Champagne reception in the stunning Marble Hall at City Hall, Cardiff.

Built in the English Renaissance style, City Hall was opened in 1906, a year after Cardiff was granted its City status. The magnificent exterior carved from Portland stone shall envelope what promises to be a true night of celebration, elegance, excitement and great welsh hospitality.

Dinner follows at 7.30pm in the Assembly Room at City Hall, a four course Sumptuous Welsh Menu with Petit Fours and Coffee.


During the evening, we will be holding an exciting live auction, a raffle with incredible prizes and presentations from Richard Parks, Steve Williams OBE and other special guests.

This year promises to be even better and we can not wait to see you there to raise as much money as we can in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and cross the finish line together with Richard.

The evening will close at Midnight.

We shall be having our after show party back at the KUKU club at the Park Plaza hotel, from midnight until 3.00am. Come and join us to continue our celebrations, sip cocktails, meet the team and chat to Richard and our special guests.
