Members of the Manic Street Preachers are to take part in a charity trek to raise money for a cancer centre in Wales.

“In November 2015 we will be walking in the footsteps of our Welsh ancestors when we will be part of the Velindre group of 50 people celebrating the 150th anniversary of Welsh settlers arriving in Patagonia with a challenging 6 day trek,” said band members James Dean Bradfield and Sean Moore. "We will be carrying all our own kit, camping and walking up to 11 hours a day.

“Although this is a tough challenge, it is nothing compared to the challenge faced by people dealing with cancer.

“We have pledged to raise at least £6,000 each so that Velindre can continue to provide exceptional care and support to cancer patients and their families, and every contribution will help towards their aim of achieving Victory over Cancer.”

The Velindre Cancer Centre in Wales is a specialist cancer treatment centre located on the perimeter of Cardiff. It provides services to over 1.5 million people across South East Wales and beyond.
