Gwilym Iolo Lewis – Change a Life Award
Gwilym’s love of rugby turned to a passion for coaching at Llanelli Warriors RFC, where he’s been making a real difference to players on and off the pitch every week for over twenty years.
Llanelli Warriors welcome adults of all abilities to take part, and a wide range of players with learning disabilities and physical disabilities have found a home at the club.
Gwilym was nominated for this Change a Life Award for his support of a player with learning difficulties. The player has been able to progress at the club, becoming captain and qualifying to become a Level 1 coach.
