‘Emyr Owen’ Porthcawl & District branch

Managed by: Kevin, Sandra and Huw Owen

Emyr OwenIn 2008 our little boy, Emyr, was diagnosed with cancer and throughout his illness we as a family were supported by LATCH. Since Emyr’s death in 2009 we have opened a local branch to support LATCH in their devoted work.

We are extremely committed as a family:

  • To promote LATCH
  • To fundraise
  • To encourage and support others in their fundraising

We are a very active branch, holding many events, including an annual ball and auction.

As well as money raised from these events we have raised over £35,000 for LATCH from the sales of Emyr’s book Pigs in Space. This is a lovely short story about 2 pigs and their adventures. The book is available from LATCH office and by contacting ourselves on the details below. It is our aim to reach sales of £50,000 and we would be most grateful for your support in achieving this sum.

We are extremely grateful for all the support that the branch has had, including the continued from Ryan Jones and Jon Humphries of the Ospreys.

Please contact us if we can offer advice and support.
