CK received a letter from a Member of Parliament in January, lamenting CK for their attitude to welsh farmers – this is our reply…
This is Huw, he wrote to us asking for help with sponsorship, but mostly to tell us how much he loved CK Flapjacks. As a result, Huw who trains with the U16 Welsh Development squad, has won himself some funding, and a few flapjacks.. and we will be following Huw and his progress all year.
Huw’s cheeky request to CK asking for flapjacks and sponsorship seems to have produced a few laughs … are a few more pictures of someone we hope will be a real star of the future.. well done Llandysul canoe cub, and everyone involved with paddling in Wales

A SWANSEA businessman is behind a great big cash giveaway to a host of city charities.
Chris Kiley, the founder of CK’s Supermarkets, said more than £14,700 had been gifted to 25 good causes through its Making a Difference Locally offices in Llansamlet.boost
A total of 12 organisations have benefited in the latest round of cash donations. Cadle Primary School was awarded money to buy sports equipment to help boost pupils’ fitness in the reception playground. Forget Me Knot were awarded money to help cover the day care for elderly people suffering with dementia in the Swansea area. The organisation Snips, which supports adults with learning difficulties also received funds. Money also went to Dafen Welfare AFC, which supports youth team development and Swansea Drugs project which helps people trying to overcome drug problems.
Llangennech RFC and Morriston Rugby Club were among those to benefit, and both will be investing the money into team development. Additionally, the Wales Air Ambulance, which has a base at Swansea Airport, has also been given further financial support.
Mr Kiley said: “We have given away a total of £14,000. There were 12 people who have just been awarded but it’s around 25 charities who have benefited. We gave Morriston Rugby Club a cheque for £250 and Volunteer Transport a cheque for £100.” He revealed that the charity had been in place for 18 months. Mr Kiley added: “We have been helping people around Swansea and also down in Fishguard. It’s a charity organised by our buying group, National Independent Association, in conjunction with CKs. It was really good day – we had a bus full of children here from Cadle School.”
The organisation has also previously supported Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, Montana Play Club, Tata Mini Rugby, Faith In Families, Terrace Road Kids Club, Teenage Cancer Trust along with Newcastle Emlyn RFC Juniors.
