Gareth Davies

Recently we were privileged to be able to interview Gareth Davies and that interview appears on our 13th December edition.

Mr Davies, born in Wales but educated in Witney, is the only Welshman to be selected for the England squad for the Blind Rugby World Cup to be held in Japan in 2019.

Born sighted Mr Davies developed Retinitis Pigmentosa in his teens and has only 10% residual sight in one eye.  He has, however, not let this dampen his spirit, enthusiasm or ambition and his selection for the rugby squad is testament to that.

We very much enjoyed interviewing him and we hope that you enjoy listening.
