    Over half term, Tata Steel teamed up with the Aberavon Wizards to deliver a rugby and netball sport camp for children aged 6 to 9.

    Thanks to a Tata steel community award the camp was free to access and provided 100 children with the opportunity to access quality coaching in rugby and netball while having fun with their friends over half term!

    Sam Williams, Aberavon Community Officer, said: “The half term camp has been another great success. Over 100 children have benefited from attending the camp and hopefully we have passed on new knowledge or increased the motivation for some of the children to join an external club in the Port Talbot area”.

    Nia Singleton, Community Liaison manager, Wales adds: “Tata Steel are delighted to be able to work with our community partners Aberavon RFC again to provide another excellent opportunity for young people in our community.

    "Leading an active life and being engaged in a physical activity is so important, and it is vital that children get the opportunity at a young age to enjoy and develop these skills. What we’re most proud about is that this camp was free to access, making it accessible to all.”

    Held at the all-new Ysgol Bae Baglan School, it gave the half term camp an excellent feel with first class facilities on offer. It was also an opportunity for GCSE pupils at the school to gain some experience and credits in their Sport GCSE by helping out and coaching over the three days.
