We Can Help You Help Other's

From time to time we all get to hear of family, former colleagues, who wish to give something back by supporting a charity by undertaking a whole variety of events from Coffee Mornings through to jumping out of a perfectly servicable plane that is going to land probably before you do, on the end of a parchute to climbing mountains etc... NARPO Cardiff Branch have always tried to support these individuals or groups whenever it can. The purpose of this page is to provide an advertising medium for those participating in such events and details of how they can be sponsored e.g. 'Just giving .com' etc. If you know of any member, their families, or any former colleagues who could benefit from a bit of free publicity please let the secretary know the details for inclusion here.



As lots of our members and readers will know, we are always very grateful for all the information that our member Mr. Steve Bartley provides us with in relation to the work of the Older Peoples Commisioner for Wales and various updates regarding benefits etc.

We have now received a request for help from him in the form of sponsorship, please read Steve's message below andd if you feel you can support him in this endeavour click on the link.

Hi All,


I, together with my wife Sandra will be doing the Cardiff Bay 10k on 1st September. We will be running to raise money for 3 local charities in memory of our beautiful granddaughter Eliza who sadly passed away on 8th June just 2 days old.


This has been a very difficult time for our family as I am sure you will appreciate.


Following Eliza’s passing our son and daughter-in-law set up a Just Giving crowd funding account to raise money for Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at UHW, Special Care Infant Support (SCIPS) and PPROM (Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes). These charities help support families who are unfortunate to lose their baby prematurely.


I would be grateful if you would circulate this message to our members and ask that they consider donating £1. We have already achieved £1200 and would like to increase this if possible. 


The link also provides details of the experiences that our daughter-in-law and son went through during this difficult time.






The following has been received from Mr Mike Baker (Branch Social Sec)

on the 5th October at Coopers Field.

My part is to try to raise sponsorship which is why this message is sent to you. If anyone would like to donate towards this worthwhile cause then please take a look at the attached forms and send what you can.
