14/06/19 PORT TALBOT TEAMS UP WITH BRIDGEND, NEATH & SWANSEA IN JOINT PROJECT, WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP, TO SUPPORT CRUSE MORGANNWG.
We are excited to announce that we will be working closely with our neighbouring clubs to fund raise to enable the work of Cruse Morgannwg over the next 3 years. Each year a club will host a fund raising event such as a coffee morning or afternoon tea. We would be thrilled if you would support this by attending.
Cruse Morgannwg support children who may have lost a parent or sibling, sadly, some of these children have discovered their loved one dead. Cruse Morgannwg give children and families the chance to grief together, show the children and their family that it is ok not to be ok and to talk to one another about it. Their goal is to be there for the children & their family as no one should be alone through their grief, especially not children. Cruse Morgannwg rely on monies donated and fundraising to provide their service. Every year they run two/three bereavement support groups for children and one bereavement residential weekend. Last year they took 15 bereaved children and adults, from five families, away for a bereavement weekend which made a massive difference. Our monies are ring fenced for the resources to enable this work.
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, MARCH 8th 2022 we attended a lunch hosted by SI Neath at the Glyn Clydach Hotel as part of the ongoing project. The speaker was Sue Poole who proved to be inspirational.

SATURDAY, 12th MARCH 2022: TRIP TO LLANDEILO TO CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
As we return to a more ‘normal’ world post pandemic we travelled to Llandeilo where we had a breakfast in the Cawdor Arms, followed by a talk given by President Jean on Rachel Barrett, the suffragette who had at one time lived in LLANDEILO. We were able to view her house from the outside and then indulge in a little retail therapy.
