Whites to help Neo Natal unit at Singleton

By Rev. Pete orphan | 28/10/2016

For the past 11 seasons Swansea RFC have chosen a local charity to support through various events during the season. Your generous support has meant £19,200.72 has been given away to 10 different charities, during that time.

 

We announced recently that this season's charity will be the Neo Natal Unit at Singleton Hospital. This unit looks after those babies born needing extra care and their families, in what can be a very tough time. Having had both personal and professional involvement with the unit it is a great cause to support.

 

Each season the club chooses a charity with suggestions coming from supporters, players and direct request to the club from charities. This year we had more requests than ever but one of our players asked us to support the unit because of recent personal family involvement and we glad to do so.

 

We targeting to raise £1,250 during the season to help the unit buy some much needed new equipment, which we hope to present to them at the end of the season.

 

Our first two fundraising events will be a bucket collection at the Ospreys v Harlequins match on Friday November 11 th here at St. Helens. I would like to thank the Ospreys for their kind help in this.

And secondly the annual club Christmas Carol service, where a collection is taken up, will be on Monday December 12th at Pantygwydr Baptist Church.

 

We are thrilled that the club's women’s team will also be supporting the charity throughout this season and will be helping out at these fundraisers.

 

If you have any ideas for future fundraising events or can help in any way please let me know.

 

But thank you again for your past support and in advance of your continued generosity.
