• Cwmtawe Ladies Hockey Club Charity Hockey Day raises over £470!

    On Sunday 20th November, Cwmtawe Ladies Hockey Club held a charity event in aid of the Swansea Valley Miner’s Appeal Fund.

    The day kicked off with the monthly South West Wales Junior Development Tournament for u13s and u15s, with Crymych, Llanybydder, Fishguard and Cwmtawe fielding teams. Throughout the tournament, willing volunteers from Cwmtawe club kept spectators (and players!) fed and watered with a hot dog stand, soup, sandwiches and cakes – all provisions were donated by Cwmtawe members, so all proceeds went straight into the charity’s collection. The Hockey Wales “Smurf Turf” was also available for kids (big and small!) to have a bit of inflatable fun between matches, and the speed gun provided that extra bit of competition, with players from all clubs trying to beat each other’s scores!

    In the afternoon, members of Teigrod Tywi, Neath Men and Cwmtawe Ladies took to the field for some friendly 7 a-side games, with all participants making a donation to the collection buckets.

    The total raised on the day £477.20, which will go directly to the Swansea Valley Miner’s Appeal Fund.

    Cwmtawe Ladies Hockey Club would like to thank the following for their support for making the day such a success:
