Wales Region

The Wales committee covers the whole of south Wales from Chepstow to Pembrokeshire, including the main coastal cities of Cardiff, Newport & Swansea & the valley areas, up to the Brecon Beacons. We currently comprise a group of 10 hard working volunteers from a range of backgrounds including legal, construction/property, finance / banking, sign language interpreter & former international referee.

Over the last 10 years or so, the region has helped to fund a variety of projects for disadvantaged children across south Wales, including sensory gardens, play areas, hydrotherapy pool & community rooms/facilities.

Our funding is all raised locally including 'clubhouses' at internationals, golf days, quiz nights & charity bike rides as well as charity lunches & dinners.
