Lily Rice

Sandy Bear has some amazing supporters. One of these is charity Ambassador Lily Rice, Elite WCMX Athlete and International Para-Swimmer. Lily is a young person with motivation and passionate about the sports she’s involved with and an infectious zest for life. We are thrilled to have Lily as an Ambassador championing our cause.

The 19-year-old from Manorbier has found her sporting name as a backflipping champion in the world of WCMX, which adapts skateboarding/BMX riding skills for wheelchair users. More recently, in 2022, took home bronze swimming in the Commonwealth Games held in Birmingham. Lily is the first person to secure a medal in swimming for Wales!

Lily says: “I’m absolutely delighted to have been asked to be an ambassador for the charity! Sandy Bear provide vital support for children and young people who are experiencing bereavement and they have a huge positive impact on those in Pembrokeshire and surrounding communities”

Leah – Youth Ambassador


My name is Leah and I am 14 years old. I’m excited to be a youth ambassador for Sandy Bear as they helped me during a difficult time after losing a family member. I want to be able to help and support others in the same way so they feel they’re not alone.

In my spare time, I enjoy socialising with my friends and seeing family, baking, drawing and I play netball.

In school, I do hair and beauty and drama which are my favourite subjects.
