No 5 – Venue: Caerphilly Leisure Centre – Total Raised £5022
Megaday organisers looked to take Megaday 99 back outdoors. A few venues were considered
and then Bedwas RFC made the best offer to host it. Although some people questioned
the move, organisers never lost sight of the true purpose of Megaday, which was to
raise as much money for Velindre as possible whilst celebrating Andrew's life. The
move was justified when it raised £2.5k more than the previous year.
The date was also moved to August bank holiday weekend so that everyone could recover
on the Monday. With the band count in the area still increasing rapidly, the start
time was brought forward to 12pm which meant that the line-up could be increased
to 13 bands.
