Epilepsy Wales - Neath's Got Talent

Author: Gareth Morris Published: 5th June 2009 09:00


The outright winner as far as Epilepsy is concerned is "These Wonderful Souls", a group of talented young people and their families from Neath in South Wales who have come together to raise awareness of epilepsy.

The inspiration came from Karen Orsborn who has epilepsy herself, diagnosed as a young child.  Her 21 year-old brother Michael died suddenly of epilepsy.
Karen engaged her children Kirsten (12 years)  and Darren (17) and their friends Talia (14), Hayley (17) and Sean (16) to sing on the CD.  The 5 youngsters know only too well how epilepsy affects families as they all have relatives with the condition.
The CD was officially launched at a sell-out concert on 9th April in the Owain Glyndwr, Neath, and were invited along to the Welsh Assembly during National Epilepsy Week, where they met with 27 Assembly Members and over 150 people affected by epilepsy. 

The sleeve of the disc features contact details of all the main charities in Wales who work to raise awareness of epilepsy.
Copies of this CD are available from Epilepsy Wales at a cost of £5 incl. p&p.
The playlist of the CD is as follows:-

                       I'll be there
                        I'll never find another you
                        Somewhere beyond the sea
                        We've only just begun
                        Fields of gold
                        The greatest love of all
                        The way we were
                        That's what friends are for
