Staff from the Aberdare-based gluten-free bakery have walked 10k to raise money for Coeliac UK.

The eight members of staff have marked Coeliac UK Awareness Week by taking part in the Coeliac UK Brecon Awareness Week Walk.

The 10k walk around the Usk Valley took place last weekend (7 May). As part of the circular walk, the fundraisers endured a 200m climb to the top of Pen-y-crug.

Samuel Davies, head of fundraising at Coeliac UK, said: “It is wonderful to have the support of Welsh Hills Bakery for the charity’s Awareness Week walks, which we run in partnership with HF Holidays.

“These walks help to generate the funds and awareness that is so important in helping to find thousands of people in the UK struggling with undiagnosed coeliac disease.”

Coeliac UK, the national charity for people with coeliac disease, is hosting its first gluten-free networking event for food industry professionals who wish to benefit from the growing gluten-free market.  The event will take place on 14 June at the British Motor Museum, Warwickshire.
