Following a horrendous injury in the Welsh Cup Semi-final in April, Gareth Jones, the Neath scrum half, died on the 16th June. A memorial fund was established in his name and we made a donation of £3000 to the Gareth Jones Trust Fund to support his wife and three young children.
The children’s ages ranged from six months to eight years. Our cheque was presented by Rowland Phillips and received on behalf of the family by Lee Beach, the Neath captain. It was the largest single donation received by the Trust.
