Financial planning and advisory firm Bartholomew Hawkins played host to Cardiff’s top rugby stars and business people on Thursday 18th September with a charity dinner in benefit of former-Cardiff Blues and Wales centre Owen Williams and the #StayStrongForOws fund.
The event, held at the Hilton hotel in Cardiff city centre, raised a total of £9,820 and was celebrated by over 180 people comprising Cardiff Blues Chief Exec Richard Holland, head Coach Danny Wilson, former Wales and Blues star Tom Shanklin, and former Wales and Cardiff RFC scrum half Terry Holmes.
Speaking of the evening, Bartholomew Hawkins director Richard Lord said: ““It was great to see such strong support for Owen and his family. The night was a great end to a year of fundraising for #staystrongforows which has also involved two challenging bike rides for the team. The near-£10,000 we helped to raise will go a long way and the generosity of all guests was remarkable; I’m sure we can continue this in years to come.”
A charity auction was held during the evening, after guests were treated to a three course meal and entertainment from comedy group the Noise Next Door.
Anyone who wishes to donate funds direct to Owen Williams can also do so by sending cheques for the attention of Helen Davies to Cardiff Blues, BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park, Westgate Street, Cardiff, CF10 1JA and made payable to the ‘Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust’ and marked ‘for Owen Williams’.
