Welsh Hearts are extremely excited to announce Aled Jones as their star guest for hugely popular Christmas concert ‘Christmas on Broadway’ taking place at City Hall, Cardiff on Friday 15th December 2017.
Aled needs no introduction. A Welsh singer, Christian and TV personality who rose to fame as a young boy for singing ‘Walking in the Air’, the beautiful song from Channel 4’s animated film ‘The Snowman’. The song reached No. 5 in the UK charts and continues to be one of the most iconic Christmas songs of all times!
Since he shot to stardom, Aled’s career has gone from strength to strength. In 2003, Aled re-launched his voice as an adult, when he released his first adult album, ‘Aled’. Although he had a previous album before this release, ‘From The Heart’, Aled considered ‘Aled’ as his first proper adult album.
In April 2016, Aled released ‘One Voice’, a concept album that saw Aled duet with his younger self. The album reached number one in the Classical Chart where he dominated the top spot for fourteen weeks and reached number three in the Official UK Charts.
Following the success of ‘One Voice’, Aled launched the follow up album ‘One Voice At Christmas’ in November 2016 with a spectacular press launch 18,000ft in the air where he performed the new ‘Walking In The Air’ – which is now the highest Christmas concert flying over the UK.
Sharon Owen, Charity Director said. “We couldn’t be more excited to have Aled on board for our Christmas Concert. Attracting big names such as Aled, is a huge step forward for the Charity. We have a really small team and work extremely hard on producing enjoyable family friendly events throughout the year”
“Without these events, we simply would not be able to continue the work that we do. We invite all Aled fans and charity supporters to come and see our fabulous Christmas show at City Hall, we promise it to be everything you could want from a festive concert and more! “
Featuring all the songs from all your favorite musicals! This is a must-see magical Christmas Concert that is guaranteed to raise the roof, warm the hearts and get the audience in the mood for a fabulous, fun and maybe even a White Christmas!
Ticket prices start at just £18.50 and can be bought through the Welsh Hearts website
Or by contacting the fundraising office on 02922 40 26 70.
All proceeds from this event will go towards Welsh Heart’s ‘Keep Wales Ticking appeal’. The primary aim of this appeal is to provide even more defibrillators into Schools & Communities across Wales.
The North Wales Dragons were formed in 2009 as a way to raise funds and awareness for various charities. Having raised £2000 for charity in our first year, they decided to hold another event the year after, since then their main fundraising day has become an annual event.
Throughout the rest of the year they play many like-minded football teams, helping them raise money for charities.
Boots for Africa, Help for Heroes, Neves Charities, Clic Sargent and Cancer UK’s ‘Join the Fight Against Breast Cancer are all charities that have benefited from our involvement in fund raising which has seen them generate approximately £20,000.00 of money for good causes to date.
Always wishing to build walls higher with each passing year, they try and make each of their fund raising days bigger, in 2013/14 they involved even more teams with the aim of raising money for more charities.
With the continuing success of the charity football team, in 2012 they became a not for profit social enterprise. Subsequently forming the ‘Plus’ Project. The project is aimed at demonstrating how business and good causes can work together for the mutual benefit of both parties.
Although based in the Llandudno Junction area, the team travel throughout Wales and across borders to other countries having many tales however, what goes on on tour, stays on tour!
Do something exciting this year and help Welsh Hearts to continue its life-saving work across Wales.

Ward B1 Cardiology Nurses from The University Hospital of Wales are taking on a Christmas Challenge to save lives in Schools and in doing so hope to raise 5K
The Nurses will be taking on The Cardiff Santa and elf Dash on Sunday 4th December at Cardiff Bay and want you to join them and help them save ives!
Over 1,200 people are now registered and proceeds will help fund more defibrillators and heart screening sessions throughout Wales!
Every year 270 children under the age of 16 die from sudden Cardiac Arrest at School, every minute without effective CPR and a defibrillator means the chances of survival every min decrease by 10% and sadly there are still schools that do not have this vital equipment in our areas.
Ward B1 Cardiology team, made up of all fitness levels are aiming to raise £5,000 by running the Santa and Elf 5k In December to place 5 defibrillators in the following schools.
Willows High School Cardiff, Stanwell Comprehensive School, Penarth, Ysgol Gyfun Glantaf, Eastern High, Rumney, Cardiff and Ysgol Gyun Gwent Is Coed
Your donations will mean that the chances of a child surviving a cardiac arrest at a school with a defibrillator increases from 6% to 74%
Please help Ward B1 to raise these vital funds on behalf of the fantastic charity Welsh Hearts/Calonnau Cymru who’s mission is to place defibrillators in schools and communities and hold heart screening sessions throughout Wales. Help the charity continue the fight in saving unnecessary deaths in our young people, every penny you donate really means the world to the parents and families of the children whose lives you will be making safer
You can either donate via the following link
via text DFIB81 and amount to max £10 to 70770

Donna Walker a student nurse at the University Hospital of South Wales said I have experienced first hand the life-saving qualities of using a defibrillator. The shocking statistic that 270 children in the UK die of sudden cardiac arrest every year is frightening, especially as not every school is equipped with one of these life-saving machines. As a nursing team we have decided that we want to do something about that and have chosen five schools to benefit from our fundraising activities with Ward B1’s 5k run to raise 5k. Currently if your child’s school does not have a defibrillator and the worst was to happen they would only have a 6% chance of survival with CPR alone, with a defibrillator in place that statistic increases to 70% which is incredible! Along with the fantastic charity welsh hearts we want to help make your schools safer and educate more people on the benefits of these machines so that your children do not become a statistic.
The more money we raise the more schools we can support says Donna! The charity Welsh Hearts do an absolutely amazing job ad since 2013 have been placing Defibrillators, cpr training throughout Wales and lives are being saved!
