Rugby stars pay a visit to LBS

WALES: The staff at Carmarthenshire-based LBS Builders’ Merchants are all rugby fans and were delighted when Ospreys and former International Wales players Mefin Davies and Ian Gough paid a surprise visit to collect a donation to the Grow a Grav appeal.
The team at LBS Llandeilo took part in the Grow a Grav appeal in November, and raised almost £1000 towards the appeal. To show their support, the directors of the independent merchant also supported the staff, by pledging an additional £5 from the company for every Grav Grown.
IT manager Craig Davies, who raised £260 for the cause, said: "I am a lifelong Scarlets fan and a big fan of the man himself. It was also an excuse not to shave for a month!"
The campaign raises funds for the WRPA's Benevolent Trust, which aims to support current and former professional rugby players in times of serious illness, injury or hardship, as well as raising funds for the Ray Gravell and Friends Charitable Trust, to provide assistance to charities which Mr Gravell supports.
