A white collar boxing night has raised £1,178.43 for the Community Children’s Nursing Services across Hywel Dda.
The event, organised by Angelo Dragone, owner of Stallion Boxing Gym, was held on 13th May 2022, in the Selwyn Samuel Centre & Lliedi Suite, Llanelli.
The Community Children’s Nursing Services support children and young people with long-term and short-term health needs with their independence and help their families to care for them safely at home, reducing the need for hospital admission.
They also support and train school and respite staff to enable children and young people to attend education to maximise their life potential, and they give families access to respite care.
The monies raised from this event will support the nurses in obtaining training materials and hosting events to benefit the lives of the children and young people the service supports.
Angelo Dragone, owner of Stallion Boxing Gym, said: “I was incredibly happy to raise funds for the Community Children’s Nursing Services. Nicola, who is a community children’s nurse, trains at the Stallion Boxing Gym and has told me a lot about the service. They provide a lot to less fortunate children.
“Thanks to everyone who attended the night and donated to this amazing cause.”
Sara McDonnell, Team Leader of the Community Children’s Nursing Services, said: “‘Thank you for making this kind donation to the Community Children’s Nursing (CCN) Team. The CCN team is a small team of nurses working across the three counties of Hywel Dda University Health Board, covering Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire. We have nurses based in Llanelli, Carmarthen, Haverfordwest, Milford Haven, Cardigan and Aberystwyth. We care for children and young people in the community.
“This can be children with a short-term health need but mainly children and young people with long-term complex health needs. We support the child by promoting their independence and empowering their family to care for them safely at home, reducing the need for hospital admission. We support and train school and respite staff to enable the child and young person to attend education to maximise their life potential and enable families to have access to respite care.
“The fabulous donation raised from this event will support us in obtaining training materials and hosting events to benefit the lives of the children and young people we support. Thank you again for supporting
