Argus 125 Appeal

“What is the #125 Appeal?”

The ‘125 Appeal’ is a fundraising challenge in celebration of the South Wales Argus being in existence for a fantastic 125 years. As part of the celebrations the Argus has decided to support St David’s Hospice Care by getting behind the 125 appeal, which challenges the people of Newport and South Wales to raise as much sponsorship as possible by taking part in their own fundraising challenges. The campaign is running all throughout 2017 so you can complete your challenge at any date and time that’s convenient to you.

Here’s what the Argus says about the appeal and their 125th anniversary year:

“Throughout our history we have reported on the news, events and things that matter to the people of Gwent. To commemorate this event we will be delving into the archives and bringing you some glimpses of our past as well as bringing our current news stories.

To celebrate this special anniversary we are today launching an appeal to raise as much money as possible for St David’s Hospice Care, a charity that has always had close ties to the Argus.

The 125 Appeal will run throughout 2017.”

(, 18th January 2017)

“How can I take part?”

You can do whatever you want! It just needs to be a challenge or event that you can raise sponsorship for and ideally be ‘125’ themed. For example:

  • 125 minutes of dancing
  • Run, walk, swim or ride 125 kilometers in a month
  • Swim 125 lengths
  • 125 sit-ups/press ups a day
  • Bake 125 biscuits/cupcakes and then hold a bake sale
  • Anything you can think of!

There is no limit to what you can do to help raise money for local hospice care.

Our aim is to get the people of Newport and South Wales to get involved and support this amazing campaign that will provide care and support to people with life threatening illnesses and to their families, to face the challenge of reaching the end of their lives with dignity and respect.
