David Rowland’s AM joned the Dads Can team and families at Llananant Farm in Raglan recently to see the work that the project does first hand, David and Keryn Rowlands enjoyed the visit, met with the families and learned a thing or two from our guide and farm owners Tim and Sue.
Here is what David had to say after his visit “Both Keryn and I found our visit to Llananant Farm absolutely inspirational. The enthusiasm showed by both Tim and Sue shone through throughout the entire visit.
Of course this was about inspiring and empowering families, and in particular the fathers, I saw plenty of evidence in all aspects of the day that this sort of event is certainly helping Dads Can to achieve this aim. Families who may be having difficulties in coping with their special circumstances appeared to be able to put those negative aspects of their lives aside, even if it was for just that day. But I am sure they would be able to take all the positive aspects of the day back into their family life.
On talking to some of the fathers it was obvious that, not only was Dads Can helpful to them, but the organisation had been instrumental in completely turning their lives around.
Again both Keryn and myself were very moved by what we saw, and would like you to convey our sincere appreciation for the work Sue and Kim have undertaken, and wish them well with their own Charity, and would like to offer our help to promote it in any way they feel appropriate.
It goes without saying that we also offer ourselves in the same way with Dads can. Also please pass on our regards to Lee. Many thanks to you Shane for the invitation, and congratulations on an excellent day.
