Ospreys help Swansea 'Welly Walk'

A trio of young Ospreys helped a Welsh children's charity 'make a splash for cash' last weekend!

On a busy day for the region, while the senior team did action at Welford Road against Leicester Tigers in the Heineken Cup on Sunday afternoon and the Community Development team hosted a clubs festival at Llandarcy, Daniel Suter, Luke Morgan and Nathan Edwards joined staff and volunteers from Bobath Children's Therapy Centre Wales on their sponsored ‘Welly Walk’ along the Swansea Bay coastline.

All three had helped Bridgend Ravens to a great win over Cardiff RFC the previous afternoon, and enjoyed a ‘Welly Warm-Up’ before undertaking the walk, with a quiz to keep participants entertained en-route.

Bobath Children's Therapy Centre Wales is a registered charity that provides specialist therapy to children throughout Wales who have cerebral palsy.

Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre Wales provides specialist physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy. Bobath therapists are state-registered and work together as a team to combine these disciplines to give each child the skills to explore their world, communicate their needs, maximise their potential and so improve their quality of life.

‘Welly Walk’s’ are a fun way for everyone to be able help with Bobath’s fundraising efforts, with whole families participating together.

Speaking about the day, Daniel Suter said:

“We were pleased to be able to take part in the ‘Welly Walk’, and to help Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre. It was a lovely day so we all enjoyed the walk along the bay for what is a brilliant cause which helps Welsh children.”
