Charitable Support

Total raised to date £46,531

Our members have been raising funds for local worthy causes since 2004 via raffles at our social events, sponsored walks, runs and quizzes.

 

Presidential year 2020 – 2022

Because of the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic the President will serve 2 years in office and his chosen charities are:

Langland Bay Lifeguard Club

The club’s primary purpose is to carry out aquatic based lifesaving and first aid training for its members aged 7 years and upwards. It is run entirely by its members who are all volunteers. Trained members carry out volunteer patrols on Langland and Llangennith beaches offering first aid to beach goers and water based rescues.

Paul Williams, from Langland Bay Lifeguard Club, said: “We are very pleased that Chris has chosen to support us in his role as President of Swansea & District Law Society. Langland Bay Lifeguard Club works hard, year-round, to ensure the public is safe in the water in and around this beautiful part of Wales and we rely upon the support of the public to continue with this important work.”

YMCA

The YMCA supports vulnerable children, young people and communities in the Swansea Bay area by providing advice, support, activities and a safe space for young people to help them fulfil their potential.  

Anne-Marie Rogan, CEO of YMCA Swansea, said: “On behalf of YMCA Swansea, a charity at the heart of Swansea since 1868 serving our community, we wish to express our gratitude at being selected as a charity to be supported by the Swansea & District Law Society. We are tremendously excited about working alongside the President to raise awareness and support across the region for our children, young people and families most in need. I know that together we can make a real difference where it matters most.”

Our President, Chris Davies, said: “One of my Charities for the forthcoming year is YMCA Swansea. They do lifechanging and lifesaving work with children, young people and their families in our area; ensuring that everybody can belong, contribute and thrive.
