Appeal for Ty Hafan

Please visit my just giving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/brian-foster-wpcs-president . I am nearing the end of my Presidential term for the Welsh Pony and Cob Society. To mark this occasion I would like to raise as much funding as possible to enable Ty Hafan to develop as a Charity and to continue the incredible work and support they offer Children and their families.

Please donate through JustGiving it 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. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you

Brian Foster

It is with the greatest of sadness to us all, to inform our members of the resignation of our current Chairman Stewart Franklin (Sarum Stud). Stewart has been a valuable part of the Association for many years and he will continue to support the work of the SWA, with his extensive knowledge and wisdom of the Welsh breeds.
His Vice-Chairman, Yvonne Small of the Pasadena Stud, is to step forward into the Chairman’s role.
