The OSC are delighted to announce that we will be supporting Ospreys in the Community and their partnership with Action for Children as our chosen charity for the remainder of this season and the next.

OitC are a not-for-profit foundation that operate independently to the professional rugby organisation.  We’ve watched OitC grow from their inception into an organisation that has really set the standard in the area they work in.

OitC have agreed a partnership with Action for Children to promote a “Bouncing Back” program to support and improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people in secondary schools.  Since launching “Bouncing Back”, OitC have worked with six local secondary schools with 296 students completing the course. 140 of these were face to face learning with the aim of returning to schools to engage with more children. 

As well as this, OitC recently expanded its mental health partnership with Action for Children by adopting the charityโ€™s Guide Digital mental health literacy platform.

As we can’t get together in the Riverside Bar on matchdays for the foreseeable future, we are selling our OSC badges via our Etsy shop and we now have some great looking OitC badges on offer too.  All profits from badge sales as well as any further donations will go towards OitC initiatives in our region so please visit our shop and make a purchase!

Tom Sloane, Head of OitC said:

 “Its great to have the OSC on board –  raising money for the Action for Children programmes align well, supporting the work in schools and rugby clubs in our communities”

As well as raising funds for OitC, we hope to get more directly involved in supporting OitC programs. For example, committee members Annette Thomas recently took part in the โ€œ30 Days your wayโ€ challenge, raising funds to help support the 30% of children who are living in poverty in the UK and Lynne Jones and husband Nigel (our former chair) have helped with the “Sporting Memories” project that supports older people living with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport.

Kayleigh Powell, OitC Participation officer said:

 “If anybody wants to get involved with OitC programs, just keep an eye out on our social media for upcoming events”

Presenting OSC Special Edition, 10th Anniversary Pin Badges!

Oh, how we miss walking around the Riverside, chatting and mingling with both home and away supporters, offering up our charity badges. The generosity of supporters, both home and away has always been phenomenal.
However, with stadium crowds not looking likely anytime soon, we’ve had to jump into the 21st century and get ourselves a swanky new online shop. ๐Ÿ›’๐Ÿ›

Our first listing will be our OSC Pin Badges. ๐Ÿคฉ

As usual, all profits from the sale of the badges will go to charity. We have a very special chosen charity this year, details of which will be announced very soon.

Lookout also for limited amounts of back editions! If you’re missing any from your collection, now’s your chance! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
So what are you waiting for? Pop over to our shop to browse and buy!

What does a 100% record for January mean for our Evan Evans Brewery player of the month vote?

It means its been really difficult to narrow down the shortlist and to be honest there are probably a few notable omissions.  However, the line had to be drawn somewhere as  we couldn’t list every player who’s taken the pitch in three impressive victories against local rivals and away in the notoriously difficult west of Ireland.
