Lend Your Support to the Bretons

At the beginning of May (May 1st to May 3rd), a relay race is being organized around Brittany to raise money to support Diwan, the Breton medium school system. Breton speaking schools are not supported by the French government, but they are essential to the future of the Breton language. Every runner carrying the baton has to be sponsored at a rate of 100 ? or more per kilometre.

Riwana and Talwyn Trevenen Baudu (Ann's grandchildren) would like you to sponsor them to run for Diwan in the name of Cornwall or Wales. All Cornish and Welsh supporters would be welcome to run alongside or just wave the flag.

Any donations either in euros or in pounds sterling, can be sent via Ann Trevenen Jenkin, An Gernyk, Fordh an Chapel, Leedstown, Hayle TR27 6BA, Kernow/Cornwall, UK . (For cheques in English make payable to Noonvares Press and they will be transferred to Brittany). For further details email Ann Jenkin (telephone 01736-850332) or Morwenna Jenkin in Brittany mor.jenkin@gmail.com
