Rebecca says, We lost a special friend, Owain Davies.  Owain spent a lot of his time volunteering in a drop in centre for the homeless in Swansea. He had a loving family and many friends who thought the world of him. We are all deeply saddened with his passing and would like to raise money in his name for addiction charities.


We will be doing a sponsored walk up Pen Y Fan. That is my favourite memory of Owain, a group of us did a sponsored walk for charity in December in the snow.

Thank you for your time and support.”
