On Fri 6th of Jan, Dads Can were the proud sponsors of the game between Newport Gwent Dragons and Benetton Rugby Treviso.
As part of the day we had many Dads and their children attend to enjoy their first game together – and thankfully the Dragons won!
There was food and warm drinks – needed due to the weather – but even drizzle and cold wind couldn’t put a dampener on the day!
It was great to see such valuable experiences being made and shared, memories that will literally last a lifetime!
But another of the reasons for us to work with Newport Gwent Dragons is to raise awareness of our project, so that more Dads get in touch with us.
We know that many men find it difficult asking for help, speaking about issues that affect them or engaging with helpful services – and doing so, far from making one weak, actually shows a sign of strength.
Yes we support Dads who are going through some troubling times, such as social service involvement, child custody or access problems, but we also have Dads working with us who don’t have such challenges, but welcome being part of something like Dads Can.
On the day, the match mascot was Kacey, who had a great time meeting the players and club officials. “We had an awesome time thanks to Dads Can”
We have so much going on, and some exciting projects for 2017 – if you or someone you know could benefit from getting involved – why not drop us a line?
