Bryan Bees was an inspirational and energetic man. As Chairman of Ton Pentre AFC he led the club with enthusiasm and invigorated all around him.
Over many years he also contributed greatly to the Rhondda Football League and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wales. A huge number of Rhondda residents knew and respected Bryan, an even larger number owe him a debt of gratitude for the opportunities that his tireless work gave them.
Following his sad passing in November 2015 the supporters, players and management team of Ton Pentre AFC were unanimous in wanting to create a permanent memorial in recognition of his lifetime contribution. As he was a man who rarely stood still we felt an active and ongoing memorial would be a fitting way to remember our friend. This will also mean that Bryan’s legacy will continue to give back to the local community that he himself gave so much towards.
The 31 July 2016 will be the first annual Bryan Bees Memorial Walk, in support of Ton Pentre AFC’s charity partner, Tenovus Cancer Care. In future years, this event is planned to continue taking place on the final weekend of July.
This year the supporters, players and management team will tackle Pen-Y-Fan – the highest peak in South Wales. Meeting at the carpark at 7.00am anyone is welcome to join and tag along. We will have bucket collections en route but if you would wish to support online then your contribution would be gratefully appreciated.
