What a treat looking through the old press cuttings from 1994-1999 when our founder, Suzanne Goodall, ran the incredible appeal to make Tŷ Hafan possible. ... And here we are, 20 years later, continuing to care for more children & families than ever 🥰 #TyHafanTurns20

✨ OFFICIAL PREMIER ✨ Watch the brand-new musical video featuring musical sounds from children at Tŷ Hafan! When we were asked to participate in the song by the incredibly talented composers, Daniel and Laura Curtis, to raise money for Tŷ Hafan we were blown away… and that was before it attracted the support of Hollywood A-listers and some of our favourite Welsh celebs (56 to be precise)! Thank you so much Laura & Dan for choosing to raise funds for us — you’ve not just created a beautiful song but an orchestral masterpiece! 🎼 If anyone wishes to make a donation, just follow this link 👉 justgiving.com/tyhafan (Can spot the sounds created by children at Tŷ Hafan? 🥁)

"We wanted to give something back to Tŷ Hafan that will help other families at a very sad time. Being given the option of using a ‘CuddleBlanket’ so that families have the chance to say goodbye to their child how they want to and have as much time as they need is an incredible gift and something we never got to do." — Alun Williams Our latest #FamilyFriday focuses on the amazing fundraising efforts of bereaved parents, Vikki and Alun Williams.
