Aberavon RFC are extremely proud to reveal our charity partnership with Follow Your Dreams for the 2015-16 season.

 

Follow Your Dreams is a national charity that inspires and supports children with learning disabilities to follow their dreams. At Aberavon RFC we will be putting on a number of events throughout the season during our Fosters Challenge Cup games to fundraise for the charity, including the much-anticipated return of Stars in their Eyes. We will also be wearing a new charity kit, which will help to raise the profile of our charity partnership. In addition to this, we will be selling t-shirts at each of our Challenge Cup games in order to raise money for Follow Your Dreams.

Operations Director John Hope said, We believe that every child has ability and we work with the children to give them a can do attitude. What we do is to provide workshops to work with the children to give them confidence, once they’ve achieved that confidence we ask them what their ambition is, we try to inspire them to have ambition, then we work with them to achieve their dream.” John furthered added “working with Aberavon will help us to get the name of Follow Your Dreams out there. The way that the players and the club have responded in terms of supporting us is fantastic; the events they’re putting on will generate income for the charity, which we guarantee, will go directly to children’s dreams. We believe that this will hopefully be a long term relationship.

Chairman Andrew John said, “As a community club and a family based club, Aberavon are delighted to be able to support the charity. We’re a big part of the community here in Port Talbot, and it’s lovely to be able to support a charity that focuses on children and following their dreams.

Club Captain Ian Moore spoke on behalf of the players when he said “As a team, when we put the shirts on for the first time I think we’ll feel honoured and proud. I think it’s a great charity that we’re supporting this year, I think it’s great that the club is doing it.

The Wizards kick off the Fosters Challenge Cup on Saturday 14th November against Pontypridd RFC at 2:30pm. The Wizards will also be auctioning off four players in the clubhouse post game.
