There's already been an amazing response to our charity wristbands campaign.
We've launched red charity wristbands so that you can show your support for our Wales squad in the Rugby World Cup AND raise money for the brilliant Welsh cancer charity Tenovus.
The wristbands are available in all 40 of Tenovus's Welsh stores, at WRU outlets, at Media Wales head office in Cardiff (Six Park Street) at Admiral's Head Office and at HSBC outlets across South Wales.
They're also available online - click on the link on our home page or via http://www.tenovus.org.uk/go-shopping/come-on-wales!-.aspx.
The wristbands cost £1 and ALL the proceeds go to Tenovus.
We launched them on Saturday and already 12 of the Tenovus stores are having to be re-stocked after selling out.
The Wales squad left for New Zealand with their wristbands and they're delighted with the campaign - seeing it as a great way of raising money for cancer and also as a help to them - as a visible sign of the fantastic support they get from the Welsh rugby-loving public.
So join the campaign, wear your wristband, support our boys and do your bit to help those with cancer too.
Come on Wales!
We're delighted to launch our charity wristbands designed to help support the Welsh squad's campaign in the Rugby World Cup AND raise money for the fantastic Welsh cancer charity Tenovus.
The wristbands cost just £1 and all the proceeds will go to Tenovus which helps those fighting cancer across the whole of Wales.

They're available in 40 Tenovus shops across Wales or via www.tenovus.org.uk, at WRU outlets, from Media Wales head office at Six Park Street, Cardiff and in a number of HSBC branches throughout South Wales. There's link on our site to the tenovus site so you can order straightaway. Online orders will incur P&P costs.
All the Welsh squad boarded the tour bus wearing one of the wristbands.
Alan Phillips, Wales team manager, said the Welsh players felt good about supporting this wristbands campaign.
"We've had players who have lost family members through all types of cancer," he said. "Gethin Jenkins lost his mother to it.
"The wristbands will help raise awareness."
As the youngest squad member, George North, 19, explains, "To me, having people back us like this is massively important. Everyone needs support. This is going to benefit the team and the charity."
Lee Byrne, our big-boot and big-hearted full-back, added, "It's really important to know we're supported.
"When people wear wristbands like this it's a big pick-up.
"My auntie is being treated for cancer at the moment. Tenovus is a great charity."
Claudia McVie, Chief Executive of Tenovus, said: "As Wales' leading cancer charity, Tenovus will be backing the Welsh team at the forthcoming World Cup and are delighted to be part of the Come On Wales campaign in partnership with the Wales Rugby Union and the Western Mail.
"As a charity we rely on the generous support of the people of Wales and hope that the players will be spurred on through people showing their support for the team and also helping a Welsh charity by wearing the Come On Wales wristbands. "
