A Brief History of Ty Olwen
In 1977 Swansea GP Peter Griffiths asked the National Society of Cancer Relief for guidance and help to establish a hospice in the then County of West Glamorgan and gave talks on the concept of terminal care and the aims of such a hospice. As a result of this a Steering Committee was formed early in 1978 under the Chairmanship of ENT Surgeon Julian Bihari and as enthusiasm for the project grew this evolved in to the Fundraising (Appeal) Committee.

Live Music With Rocket Joe Joe in aid of Ty Olwen, Sunday 30th August 2015 and boy did we party!
Our Club made a promise to Ty Olwen's President Margaret Bartlett in 2011 to continue supporting their work. True to our word another fantastic effort was made by the Committee and Club Members. Rocket Joe Joe & The Old Time Bangers, an amazing live band took us back to the 50's and 60's, as we partied until the early hours. Thank you to Band Members: Jess, Dan, Jason & Matt you were brilliant! The Auction was fast and furious with Members bidding for a signed and authorised Scarlett's Rugby Shirt. Culminating in the last Two Men or should I say Two Women standing, and secured by a very generous Club Member who bid a whopping £110. Another one of our Members kindly donated £50 and many Members bought tickets for a very impressive Raffle.

Hands For Alan Appeal
Alan lost his hands when he was 3 years old due to an infection he picked up while in hospital. Alan was born with a complex heart defect and underwent major open heart surgery. After surgery he caught an infection and his little heart had to work so hard to pump blood to his brain and lungs to keep him alive. However, Alan's heart was not strong enough to pump blood to his hands. Despite the Doctors' best efforts, Alan lost all circulation to his hands and they could not save Alan's fingers. In fact we are lucky to have Alan with us today as his parents were told 3 times that night he would not make it. Alan is now a happy, healthy 9 year old. A Little Fighter, whose dream is to be like other children his age. To be independent, dress himself, ride a bike with his friends and we all know with new Bionic Hands he will be able to do these things and more. Help us help Alan to grow older with more confidence than ever before; going from strength to strength to achieve his goals in life.
