Gowerton RFC riding for Ty Olwen

The Team

Gowerton RFC raising money for Ty Olwen

We are cycling from Cwmbran to Gowerton on 1st September visting all the regional rugby stadiums on the way. The team currently consists of David Treharne, Robert Griffiths, Welsh international rugby player Huw Bennett, Ceri Bushnell,Julian Williams, Andrew Burgoyne and Steven Williams although we are hoping that more participants will commit to the ride. We are riding to raise funds for Ty Olwen because of the support they provide to cancer patients and their families in the Swansea area.

We are doing the ride because, last year, a member of Gowerton RFC who has two young sons playing for our junior section passed away due to cancer. The gentleman’s name was Tony Jones. I don’t think Tony had even reached the age of 40. He left a wife and two boys aged 13 & 11. The family were originally from Cwmbran but moved to Gowerton a number of years ago due to Tony’s work with Network Rail. We felt it would be an opportunity to commemorate Tony and raise funds for a worthy cause. It was Tony’s wife, Claire, that nominated Ty Olwen as the beneficiary.
