An Amman Valley schoolboy who has raised over £1,000 to help an Ammanford man who was brutally attacked over a decade ago has taken on more challenges to raise even more cash for the good cause.

Dilan Morgan, from Cwmgors, has taken on the Invincible rookies, Taff Kids, Swansea Admiral and the almighty IronKids once again this year to to boost Paul’s Pledge.

The six-year-old managed to raise £1,400 by distributing collection buckets around various businesses as well as a JustGiving page set up by mum Katherine Morris.

The reason behind Dilan’s good deed was down to event held last year to mark the ten-year anniversary of Paul Pugh’s attack.

Paul was left in a coma for two months following the unprovoked assault outside the Old Cross Inn, Ammanford on January 6, 2007, for which four men were jailed.

He now regularly gives motivational and educational talks in schools to give an insight into the devastating effects alcohol-fuelled violence can have.

His ‘pledge’ is to ask people to show support to his campaign and vow to never condone violent behaviour, to walk away from aggression and violence and encourage friends and family to do the same.

Katherine said: “Dilan wanted to donate his money box to help Paul after meeting him on the tenth anniversary presentation held at the Fishermen’s in January last year.

“After seeing Paul in a wheelchair, Dilan started to ask questions about why he can’t walk and he wanted to go home and give Paul money from piggy bank to help him.”

The Gwaun-cae-Gurwen school pupil got to visit Paul last year to present a cheque and was greeted by Paul as his “hero” for his efforts to raise money to help his ongoing therapy.

“As a mum I couldn’t have been prouder seeing Paul throwing his arms around Dilan last year and it was definitely a tear in my eye moment,” added Dilan’s mum.

“He wanted to raise more money and he’s taken on some big challenges over the last few months.”

To help support Dilan, sponsorship forms are available are The Fishermen’s, Glanaman; Square and Compass, Llandyfan; Lauren Jane Hair, Llandybie; Garnant Barbers; Bubbles Ammanford; E. G Brooks, Ammanford; JJ’s Fis Bar, Glanaman; Cottage Inn, Ammanford; Amman United RFC and Cwmamman United’s shop at Greing Park which is open on game days.

Despite raising money for Paul’s Pledge, Dilan also has more in common with Paul after joining his former football team.

“Dilan has raised joined Cwmamman United Under 8’s and he’s really enjoying,” said Katherine.

“The football club is one of the groups involved in the Tesco Bags of Help campaign where shoppers can pick a club to win up to £4,000.

“If you are shopping in Ammanford Tesco we’d love you to put your blue token in Cwmamman United Football Club so they can purchase more equipment for the team.”
