Wales Veterans took part in the Charity seven a side tournament held at Cwmbran Celtic FC on Saturday 30 May in aid of 37 year old Paul Scriven who suffered a double stroke when aged 31 and a teacher. Paul now lives at the Leonard Cheshire Home near Caerleon where he requires round the clock care and communicates by motioning “yes” or “no” with his eyes to direct questions.
We were very pleased to support Chris White and all of those participating in and supporting the tournament and we hope everyone had an enjoyable afternoon, especially Paul who deserves all of the effort that will be put in on his behalf.
