Steve Hughson, chief executive of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society (RWAS), dived 50ft into the Blue Lagoon in Abereiddi to raise funds for R.A.B.I and the Feature County Fund.
The jump was part of this year’s RWAS chief exec’s challenge – an annual fundraising event that Steve embarks on. Joined by 29 brave supporters, Steve set off on a 103 mile cycle ride around Pembrokeshire, starting at Cyrmych Fire Station. The group travelled south to Carew before taking the western coastal road back up towards Broad Haven, Newgale and Solva.
They stopped off at St David’s cathedral to ring the bells before heading to Abereiddi, where RWAS show president Seimon Thomas joined Steve in jumping into the world-famous lagoon.
Steve said: “This year’s challenge added an element of real danger with the cliff jump, but we did it and it was exhilarating. I thank all involved and we hope to have raised a significant amount for the Royal Welsh and my own choice R.A.B.I.”
Steve will present the funds raised to R.A.B.I at the upcoming Royal Welsh Show.
