Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit Gwlad's latest JustGiving page.  Gwlad (Gwladrugby.com) is a Welsh rugby website.  Each Six Nations tournament and each Autumn International series sees a Gwlad fundraising rugby match - ALL the money we raise will go to a good cause i.e. none of the money goes to Gwlad itself.

This year we are raising money for the family of Stuart Williams, the Pontypridd prop who died suddenly on Monday 21st October at the age of 33, leaving behind a young family (here's the tribute to him on Ponty's website).

We are very grateful for the Welsh Rugby Players Association for helping us raise money for his family through their Benevolent Trust - they have kindly agreed that what we raise for this match can be donated in turn to Stuart's family by the WRPA Benevolent Trust. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity, together with Gift Aid where appropriate (Gift Aid will give charities up to an additional 25% - typically about 18% after Justgiving's admin fees). Please note that it may not be possible, for legal reasons, for the Gift Aid to go to Stuart's family - we still recommend you choosing the Gift Aid option as the WRPA is itself a very worthy cause. We will confirm the position as soon as we know. 

So please dig deep and donate now.

Diolch! Thanks!

Our match will be held on Saturday 9th November, the same day as the Wales v South Africa match, kicking off at 12 noon. At the ARMS PARK!

On the day of the match we will be collecting for both Stuart's family and for the children of his cousin, Gareth 'Snid' Jones, the late Neath and Ponty scrumhalf who died following a rugby injury five years ago.  This Justgiving page is purely for Stuart's family.

We were honoured that Stuart's family attended the game and they presented the Man of the Match award. Stuart's wife wanted to extend the family's heartfelt gratitude to all who played, helped and donated.

Thank you to everyone that made yesterday happen - what a fantastic day. A very enjoyable game (despite losing 7-37) and loads of money raised (another £965.52 on the day). Diolch!

Thank you all for your generous donations thus far, we've now bumped the target up to £1,200. Can we make it? I think so. Those of you attending the game (12noon, Sat, @ the Arms Park) can contribute to the bucket collection or take part in the auction & raffle @ Fuel afterwards

On the day of Stuart's funeral, our thoughts are with his family, friends, all at Pontypridd and Cilfynydd rugby clubs and with the wider rugby community that knew him. Funeral arrangements information: http://www.ponty.net/stuart-williams-funeral-arrangements

Delighted to confirm that we'll be playing at the Arms Park, as we reach £250. Thanks to all of you who've helped spread the word, particularly those of you who've been busy retweeting the details and even more importantly, thank you everyone who has donated. Diolch o galon!
