Every year we send a group of very deserving children and youths on an activity weekend in Newgale and this year was no different!
Thanks to money raised from our Paris to Swansea Bike Ride and Black Tie Cruise, on 18th August we were able to send 40 young people to experience a thrilling adventure which gave them the opportunity to socialise with other patients.
The little break goes such a long way in helping to improve their self-esteem and confidence by taking part in outdoor activities, teaching them to manage their treatments and giving the chance to speak to other young people going through the same thing – something we think is crucial!
Sean Thomas, a youth worker who took part in our bike ride and organised the Newgale event said: ‘The Newgale weekend is a real highlight of the year and the difference it makes to the children is tremendous.’
There’s nothing like being able to provide a bit of happiness for those who really need it and we have you to thank for that! All of your generous donations and hard work really does make a difference!
