Dragons RFC will be showing the club’s support for leading mental health charity SignPosted Cymru when they tackle Ospreys this weekend.
Signposted Cymru is an initial and immediate intervention with early prevention for individuals struggling and needing support with mental health and well-being issues.
The charity offers responsive, tailored help and support for individuals who strive for a brighter future.
Darren Thomas, founder of the charity, thanked Dragons for the visual show of support during the BKT United Rugby Championship clash on home soil.
“We are the fastest growing mental health charity in the UK and from day one Dragons RFC have supported us,” he said.
“The club has always supported us through fundraising, the staff doing the Welsh Three Peaks challenge, allowing us to bring sponsors down to Rodney Parade to watch the games.
“To be chosen as the charity of choice for the Dragons is a massive honour. The club has some really good players, Welsh internationals within the squad, so to be associated with that is a real honour for us that we don’t take lightly.
“To find out more about the charity we have our own website signpostedcymru.com, we are all over social media and you can find links through the Dragons themselves.
“If anyone is out there struggling with their mental health then please don’t hesitate get in touch with us and you will be seen immediately.”
Aaron Wainwright, an ambassador for SignPosted Cymru, said: ”I’m looking forward to seeing us all play in the new kit this weekend and excited to represent Signposted Cymru on the pitch against the Ospreys.
“They are the fastest growing mental health charity in the UK and for me to be a part of that as an ambassador is fantastic.
“The more I can spread the message in the current climate of mental health and get people speaking about things the better.
“Anyone that is struggling please get in contact with Signposted Cymru via their official website or get in touch via the Dragons.”
