Morganstone Managing Director, Ian Morgan was delighted to recently hand over a cheque for £2000 to Jesse Lewis on behalf of the Jac Lewis Foundation at the recent Ammanford AFC v Britton Ferry football match. The Ammanford based charity was set up in memory of Jesse’s late son Jac – a huge part of the Ammanford community, who sadly passed away earlier this year. The charity’s mission is to support the local Ammanford community with mental health awareness, support, resilience and mentoring and to create a culture where it’s ok to talk about mental health.
The money was raised through a number of initiatives including a Morganstone/Westacres Charity day where the Ospreys and Morganstone team pitted themselves in a cricket match against Ammanford Crickets first team.
The entertaining family day out was filled with stalls and fun activities including a funfair, fairground rides, a DJ, trampolines, a bouncy castle, craft stall, face painter, glitter tattooist alongside a BBQ and prosecco and strawberry stall. In addition, further fundraising took place through a charity football match of Ammanford Football against Ammanford Rugby Club, raffles and direct gift aids.
Ian Morgan said, “The Jac Lewis Foundation and its’ mission are very close to the hearts of myself and Tonia. Unfortunately a number of our very close friends and their families have been sadly affected by mental health issues. We along with the whole community of Ammanford want to ensure that Jac’s legacy will be to provide help and support to individuals at any age, particularly young men that require it . I personally would like to thank everyone involved in the fundraising including the Ospreys, Ammanford Cricket and Football teams, Cyfle and the whole community of Ammanford who have been phenomenal in their support of Jesse, Janet and the Jac Lewis Foundation.”
