The Time Lord himself, Peter Capaldi, took time out from saving the universe to stop by and meet some delighted families in the hospice. The Doctor was fantastic, spending lots of time with everyone present. He created Doctor Who drawings for all the children and even made time to promote Children's Hospice Week. Thanks so much for visiting us Peter!

Ty Hafan's own Rebecca Chick today putting the miles in and facing atrocious winds. We are training to complete a Paris2Swansea cycle ride in aid of Ty Hafan. Still looking for more riders.

Want to get a t shirt for the run, can anyone advise what sizes the t shirts are? The website states S,M,L,XL but what size would be suitable for a size 12 lady??

Ever wondered about the work we do with siblings? Anna Bowyer, our Sibling Support Coordinator, talks a little bit about how we support our amazing siblings in this week's #FamilyFriday blog: She said: "For most of these children and young people, the hospice is a special place brimming with happy memories and it is important for them to have access to a place where they are able to hear stories of their sibling, told with love by the staff who cared for them."
