Paul carries Never Say Die for Inspiration, article from Western Mail The following extracts appeared in two articles from local press, the South Wales Evening Post and the Western Mail.

It was a copy of Never Say Die, the life story of Port Talbot girl Melanie Davies.

Mel was injured so badly in a motorcycle accident as a teenager she nearly died. But she survived and despite being confined to a wheelchair her cheerful disposition and positive attitude made her a real inspiration."

"We all like getting lost in a good book, but singing star Paul Potts has revealed he carries one around for inspiration.

He's a patron of TREAT Trust Wales, a charity dreamt up by Mel Davies, formerly of Paul's adopted town of Port Talbot but now living near Pontardawe with husband, Mike….

Paul said: "I carry the book with me for inspiration."

Mel said: "Paul Potts epitomises the perfect charity patron. At every given opportunity he mentioned TREAT Trust Wales and our aspirations and always speaks eloquently accompanied by enormous enthusiasm. When he told me that he carried my autobiography Never Say Die with him for inspiration I was moved beyond words.

But when he said Never Say Die accompanied him on the set of One Chance, I was lost for words and that's unusual!" "
