Croeso Donates £500 to Cardiff Chameleons

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Cardiff Chameleons Swimming Club enable children and adults with special needs or learning disabilities to participate in competitive swimming competitions or just to swim for pleasure. Last year Croeso Lodge donated £500 to help them prepare for the upcoming Special Olympics in Los Angles.
We were delighted to recently receive these pictures from Chameleon member Andrew Williams who won gold and bronze medals at the event.

Despite support from Croeso and others, Andrew still had to raise almost £1000 to cover his and his carers expenses while in the USA. Huge congratulations to Andrew and everyone who took part in the event.

Croeso donate to Cruse Bereavement Care

crus cheque

W.Bro Robert Cozens presents a cheque for £500 to staff from Cruse Bereavement Care, Wales.

W.M. Les Hopkins presents a cheque for £500 to Cruse Bereavement Care Wales.

For most of us, bereavement will be the most distressing experience we will ever face. Grief is what we feel when somebody we are close to dies. Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve.

Cruse Bereavement Care Wales’ vision is that all bereaved people should have somewhere to turn when someone dies. Grief is a natural process, but it can be devastating. Most people will cope with help and support from family and friends but for those who need additional specialist help, Cruse offers free confidential support for adults and children.

Accepting the cheque on behalf of Cruse is Croeso member W.Bro Robert Cozens (left).


If someone you know has died and you need to talk, call Cruse on 0844 477 9400 or email   cardiff@nullcruse.org.uk. To find out more about the amazing work Cruse do, click here
