Paul Thorburn becomes Chairman of TREAT

Written by on 8th October 2015. Posted in News

Paul Thorburn, former Welsh Rugby Union player, took over from Mike Davies as Chairman of TREAT Trust Wales in 2014.

TREAT are delighted to welcome Paul on board as chairman, and Paul has this to say about his appointment:

“When I was asked by the Trustees to take on the role of Chairman for Treat Trust, I was absolutely delighted and indeed honoured. I have had an association with the Trust for a number of years, through my longstanding friendship with Mike and Mel Davies and although my involvement has to this point been more ambassadorial, I am now looking forward to working with the Board to drive the project forward.

Ultimately TREAT Trust Wales is aiming to provide a state of the art rehabilitation centre for the benefit of the local and Welsh community, to assist those with disability, whether permanent or temporary following accident or illness, in improving their quality of life, general fitness and sense of well-being and self-esteem.

The timing of my new appointment is very relevant, with the International Paralympic Championship European athletics games coming to Swansea in

August of this year and as Chairman of the Local Organising Committee, I am hoping that we can further educate and engage the general population to recognise the challenges people with physical disability face and, more importantly how we can help them”

Donation received from Masonic Province of South Wales

Written by on 18th July 2014. Posted in News

At the special meeting of the Masonic Benevolent Fund Court of Governors in Bridgend Temple on July 11th, the Provincial Grand Master of the Province of South Wales, Gareth Jones, was pleased to present a cheque for £2500 to Melanie and Mike Davies, toward their commendable work in seeking to establish a world class centre for recovery and rehabilitation for all that need it, based at the Morriston Hospital site outside Swansea.  The cheque brings the total donated by Freemasonry to this worthy cause, thus far, to £7,000, from Provincial resources and individual Lodge fund raising. All monies donated to this, and many other deserving charities, both national and local comes entirely from Freemasons themselves.  Melanie gave those present a well delivered and passionate insight into how she became injured herself, and then inspired to dedicate herself to the establishing of the TREAT Trust centre, in the positive and amusing way she makes her own.  The fund raising goes on,  Melanie happy to attend wheelchair accessible locations to make a presentation in a quite remarkable fashion, and present her equally remarkable book, all proceeds from sales used to benefit the TREAT cause, and give a real insight into her hopes and plans. Her aim of the centre dedicated to recovery and rehabilitation is steadily gaining ground, supported not only by Freemasons, but leading figures such as Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Michael Sheen, Paul Potts, and Max Boyce to name but a few.
