APF Fundraiser of the Year 2021

December 2021

We are delighted to announce that Linda Jones has won The APF Fundraiser of the Year Award 2021.

Linda is the Ladies Vice Captain at The Radyr Golf Club in Cardiff and in her role, decided to nominate APF as their charity of the year. Linda sadly lost her mum, Ruth, to IPF in 2020 and wanted to raise much needed awareness and funds in her memory.

I had watched my mum gradually deteriorate, was on continuous oxygen and each day was a struggle. Nevertheless, she remained positive and in good spirits 

Linda and The Radyr Golf Club held numerous fundraising activities such as a cycling event, raffles and a burger stand for hungry golfers. APF was one of two charities chosen for charity of the year, Linda and the club raised over £11,000 each for APF and Ty Hafan, a children’s hospice.  Julie Hocking, Support Group Leader for The Llandough Support Group represented APF at the awards evening and accepted the incredible donation.

I chose APF as they are proactive in providing information and support for sufferers, their carers and also educate health professionals
