If you have any unused change left over from your holiday, please help to raise money for Tŷ Hafan and donate your foreign coin! Last year we converted £634.81 in foreign coin which paid for a week’s food at the hospice. This year, can you help us to raise £1,200 to provide two weeks of food for the hospice? You can drop it off at any of our shops, the Distribution Centre in Bridgend or at our main office in Sully. Find your nearest shop here https://www.tyhafan.org/find-your-local-shop/

Good morning I am removing this spa/ jacuzzi bath and wondered if you could find a use for it or to sell in your charity shop. If you are interested please message me. You would need to collect it as it will not fit in my car.

Have you got into the cycling spirit through watching the Tour de France? Why not hope on your bike and take on the Taff Trail Cycle Challenge for Tŷ Hafan - we may not be able to give you a yellow jersey but you do get an exclusive blue Taff Trail t-shirt!
