See below letter containing info for a dinner being held for one of the boys in the u14s
It would be great if we could fill a table to raise money for such a worthwhile cause, as well as show our support for one of the players in the Mumbles Junior section.
Email if you are interested in a table or want any mored details. You can read more about LATCH on their website here.

As you may be aware, we at Mumbles RFC U14s are raising money for LATCH, The Welsh Children’s Cancer Charity.
Dylan Gunner, a 14 year old boy from our team, was diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and is now going through 12 months of treatment. The LATCH Organisation has been magnificent with their support to both Dylan and his family and will continue with this support throughout his treatment.

Dylan is a local West Cross / Mumbles boy and has been playing rugby for Mumbles RFC from the age of 6. We started our activities with a sponsored walk before Christmas and we raised well over £4,000, which was fantastic!! We are now organising a dinner at Langland Golf Club on Friday 26th April. As a club we have a youth dinner and a senior dinner, but to my knowledge, we have never had one in the Junior section (crazy, when you think how important it is to the future of the club) I know I have spoken to most of you about this and everyone has said they would take a table, well now it is time for you to put your money where your mouth is!

We are limited to 9 tables of 10 so it will be on a first come first served basis. The seniors, youth, old fogies from the club (my dad and his mates), South Gower and Dunvant have all asked for tables, and whilst of course I would be willing to sell to them to make the money, I would personally prefer to fill the room with our Junior section. The tickets are priced at £250 for a table, if you can’t take a full table then we will try and fit all numbers in, just let me know how many tickets you want (£25 each).

Full details for the evening will follow, but It will be a Lounge suit affair with a three course meal. We have secured Dai Vaughan (Chairman of Dunvant RFC and an excellent speaker) to do the after dinner speech, there will be a raffle (with good prizes), an auction, including a signed Swans shirt (Michu’s) and more.

I need to know how many tickets you require by the 8th Feb and then money, by 1st March. As you can imagine this takes a lot of organising on top of running and coaching the U14s team so please help me here by replying promptly. It would be great if I didn’t have to sell tables to other people and we sold out just with the Junior section!!!!!
