Un o denoriaid Cymru ar y llethr sgïo er budd elusen

Published

on

welsh11MAE ATYNIADAU Parc Gwledig Pen-bre wedi chwarae rhan arbennig yn Her Cylchdaith Cymru a arweinir gan Rhys Meirion, y tenor rhyngwladol enwog.

Bu’r canwr opera o Gymru a’i dîm, gan gynnwys y digrifwr Tudur Owen, yn teithio ar Segway, yn llithro i lawr y llethr sgïo sych 300 metr o hyd ar ringo, yn neidio ar y tobogan ac yn mynd ar gefn beic i gynyddu ymwybyddiaeth ynghylch rhoi organau.

Treuliodd Rhys a’r tîm y prynhawn yn y parc yn rhan o ddigwyddiad sy’n para wythnos lle byddant yn teithio o amgylch y wlad gan ddefnyddio cynifer o ddulliau teithio â phosib. Mae’r canwr hefyd yn lledaenu’r neges am elusen a lansiwyd er cof am ei ddiweddar chwaer ac sy’n ceisio cefnogi pobl sydd angen organau yng Nghymru a’r teuluoedd yng Nghymru sydd wedi colli anwyliaid oedd wedi rhoi eu horganau.

Ar ddiwedd y prynhawn cawsant eu cludo mewn cerbyd 4×4 ar hyd Llwybr Arfordirol y Mileniwm cyn symud ymlaen i Borthcawl.

Cyrchfan terfynol y grŵp oedd â’r Eisteddfod Ryngwladol yn Llangollen

Dywedodd y Cynghorydd Meryl Gravell, yr Aelod o’r Bwrdd Gweithredol dros Wasanaethau Hamdden Cyngor Sir Caerfyrddin: “Cafodd y grŵp amser gwych yn y parc a buon nhw’n defnyddio rhai o’n dulliau teithio unigryw. Hwn oedd y tro cyntaf iddyn nhw ddefnyddio Segway a’r Ringos a chawsant lawer o hwyl wrth gynyddu ymwybyddiaeth ynghylch achos pwysig. Roeddem ni wrth ein boddau o gael chwarae rhan fach er mwyn eu helpu i gyflawni hynny.”

Hyd yn hyn mae’r tîm wedi teithio drwy’r awyr, dros y dŵr, drwy’r mynyddoedd ac ar y ffyrdd er budd elusen a lansiwyd yn sgil marwolaeth ei chwaer ac sy’n cefnogi pobl sydd angen organau, a’r teuluoedd yng Nghymru sydd wedi colli anwyliaid oedd wedi rhoi eu horganau.

Dywedodd Rhys Meirion, un o denoriaid Cymru: “Rydym ni wedi cael ymateb gwych gan bawb hyd yn hyn ac mae wedi bod yn eithaf syfrdanol ac yn gadarnhaol iawn.”

O 1 Rhagfyr bydd y ffordd yr ydym yn dewis bod yn rhoddwyr organau yng Nghymru yn newid. Bydd Deddf Trawsblannu Dynol (Cymru) 2013 yn cyflwyno system feddal o optio allan o ran cydsynio i’ch organau a’ch meinweoedd gael eu rhoi pan fyddwch yn marw. Mae hyn yn cael ei alw’n “gysyniad tybiedig” hefyd.

Bydd y gyfraith yn golygu os ydych o blaid rhoi eich organau ond nad ydych am ba reswm bynnag wedi cofrestru i roi organau, y caiff ei gymryd yn ganiataol eich bod wedi cydsynio i fod yn rhoddwr organau. Os nad ydych am fod yn rhoddwr, am y tro cyntaf byddwch yn gallu cofnodi penderfyniad i wneud hynny’n glir.

A 50-YEAR-OLD man from Ceredigion appeared at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court on Monday (Sept 16) to face a charge of being intoxicated in a public place, whilst he was prohibited from doing so.

Malcolm Roy Edwards of Queens Road, Aberystwyth, pleaded guilty to being drunk in public in Llanrystud when he was prohibited from doing so after being made subject to a criminal behaviour order by Aberystwyth magistrates on October 12, 2017.

He also admitted breaching that order by committing this offence on September 11 this year.

Magistrates sent Edwards to prison for 18 weeks, as they felt the offence was serious having been aggravated by the offence being committed whilst on a community order.

He must also pay £122 victim surcharge, and the community order was revoked.

AM and MP help ease complicated bus pass application process

Published

on

Elin Jones AM and Ben Lake MP have offered to help constituents who need to renew their Bus Passes, after raising concerns about the change in the renewal process.

As the current Concessionary Travel Passes run out at the end of the year, Transport For Wales have asked pass holders to reapply online, however Elin Jones and Ben Lake have raised concerns that the process is over complicated and that applying online rather than via a paper form will exclude many.

Initially, if applicants wanted a paper form, TfW said that applicants had to call a helpline and were warned the process would take a long time. So, as thousands went onto the website, it crashed under the weight of demand.

However, with the website expected to be back up and running soon, Elin Jones and Ben Lake have offered to help constituents reapply.

Elin Jones said:

“Bus pass users have been told that their current passes will be accepted for travel until 31 December 2019, however after that they will need to have the new pass.

“The application process has been muddled by urging people to reapply online. We know that many over 60s and disabled people may not have internet access or may be unfamiliar with its use.

“To simplify the process, I am offering the support of my office to try and help constituents with the process of reapplying for their bus pass, and Ben Lake MP is doing the same.

“If constituents would like to collect a paper form, or if they require assistance applying on paper or online, then they are welcome to contact us and we would be glad to assist, either by arranging a visit to either of our offices, or by sending forms to you.”

Ben Lake added:

“We know how vital access to buses are to many older and vulnerable people in Ceredigion, and I hope that we will be able to help as many people as possible to keep this access.”
