Fans have taken to twitter to show their support for #StayStrongForOws
A huge thank you to the thousands of rugby fans from around the rugby world that have already snapped up our special #StayStrongForOws wristbands and pledged their support to our campaign!
Cardiff Blues announced last week that the region had joined forces with the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust to ensure we can raise valuable funds to help and support our injured player Owen Williams in the long-term as he continues his recovery.
Fans were then given the chance to show their support for Owen by purchasing specially created #StayStrongForOws wristbands from Cardiff Blues.
And you have been doing that in fantastic numbers around the rugby globe with some of the images shown here from twitter of fans proudly wearing them - with many displaying the special 'Ows' message - creating an 'O' with your index finger and thumb and 'W' with your fingers!
Bands have been sent out to clubs and businesses that wish to sell them and supporters have also been buying them at the BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park and online HERE
The wristbands carry the #StayStrongForOws motto and have been created in gold and navy blue to represent Cardiff Blues and Owen's home town club Aberdare RFC.
Wristbands are available NOW for just £1.50 by clicking HERE or in person from the Cardiff Blues Store.
Clubs and businesses that wish to stock wristbands to sell are able to purchase them in batches of 100 and should email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
Anyone who wishes to donate funds direct can also do so by sending cheques to Cardiff Blues, BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park, Westgate Street, Cardiff, CF10 1JA and made payable to the 'Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust' and marked 'for Owen Williams'.
