It was appropriate that a former 'old boy' of Gowerton Comprehensive School, current Wales No 10, Dan Biggar, opened the new sensory garden at the school.
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.
