WELSH rugby star Leigh Halfpenny officially opened a brand new hydrotherapy pool at the Ty Hafan children’s hospice yesterday, March 26.

Leigh signed autographs and brought massive smiles to the faces of the children as he officially cut the ribbon to the hydrotherapy pool and left a painted handprint on the walls of the Sully-based hospice.

Ty Hafan Ambassador Leigh, who is currently recovering from a dislocated shoulder himself, said it was an “honour and a privilege” to officially open the hydrotherapy pool and that he hoped the children would enjoy the “state of the art” facility.

He added that Welsh rugby players used similar facilities for recovery themselves, and that he always preferred hot water to cold baths!
