Gareth Thomas completes #TourDeTrophy - 500 miles from Cardiff to Aberdeen
"Cardiff to Aberdeen. 500 miles. 7 days. 1 man." In December 2019, ex-professional rugby player and Welsh international Gareth Thomas cycled from Cardiff to Aberdeen raising money for Sport Relief. I was part of the Siml social media team tasked with documenting his journey along the way for BBC Radio Five Live. As part of my brief, I was tasked with producing and editing this highlights video of the full 7 days. It was shown on the main BBC Sport website, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, amassing over 80,000 views. Footage included was shot by a combination of myself, the 5 Live social media team (Kay Davies, Jack Jones, Laura Howard and Heather Davina Campbell), Sport Relief social media team, Peter Small and the BBC live streaming team.
Gareth Owens: From a solo hitchhike to his own mental health coffee shop
I interviewed Gareth Owens about the incredible story behind Get The Boys a Lift, a project that began with a solo hitchhike around Wales. Gaz describes the project's humble beginnings and the work that's gone in to making it what it is today. This is what Gareth wrote when he shared the video on Get The Boys a Lift: "We were recently lucky enough to catch up with Greg Caine Media as part of the Change 4 the regions programme and featured as one of their Change-makers. This came right after we'd worked out that we'd sold enough coffee and clothing, as well as secured enough crowdfunding that we'd be in a position to have counsellor on site with us one day a week for the next year. Gaz sat down and spoke about how the project came about, the work that goes on here, the stress that went in to building such a project and how the community came out in force to made this happen. To those who understand, support, and back our work. Thank you! For clothing, information, support and more, head on over to www.gettheboysalift.co.uk."
March for Welsh Independence
The inaugural March for Welsh Independence - organised by AUOB Cymru - was a resounding success, with estimates of up to 3,000 people in attendance. Adam Price, the leader of Plaid Cymru (whose voice is heard at the start of the video) and Sion Jobbins, the co-founder of YesCymru (whose voice is heard at the end) addressed a passionate crowd at the Hayes in Cardiff City Centre.
