27/28 AUGUST 2016 History Of Megaday

Megaday 2009

Megaday No 15 Venue: Caerphilly RFC – Total Raised £11,900

We had a major coup in 2009 and Managed to get GLC "Goldie Looking Chain" to headline Megaday Saturday originals night. It was a record attendance for a Megaday Saturday and one of those Megaday highlights that will be remembered for a very long time by all those who attended. Nation Radio held their own Battle of the Bands Contest which was won by the Stanley Band; the prize was a support slot with Goldie Looking chain.

The Megaday 6 a side football competition was won by The Lansbury Street Dogs (unfortunately the cup’s has never been seen since). Local boy "Jonny Jackson" who had moved to Tenby a few years earlier, cycled from Tenby to Megaday to raise more money through sponsorship for Velindre.

Local DJ Gethyn Williams got involved and organised the first Megaday “Dance for Life” House music night at Pulsars nightclub Caerphilly. Megaday Sunday was headlined by the popular Madness tribute band Baggy trousers and we even had Opera on the bill for the first time thanks to Anthony Garcia.

In 2009 one of Megaday’s key founders Steve ‘Suggs’ Sullivan was awarded the MBE by Prince Charles for contributions made to Velindre Hospital. Steve said, “I was an honour and I felt very humbled, Megaday is a community effort and I would like to thank everyone who has contributed over the years to its success. Megaday is a wonderful event and a glowing reflection of Andrew and Paul’s popularity, I just hope we’ve made a difference at Velindre and done them proud”.
