Llandough Hospital team hand over Knockout cheque
Tuesday 19 October 2010
An enthusiastic team of nurses, physiotherapists and a hospital porter from Llandough Hospital were delighted to be able to hand over a cheque for £1,100 to Tŷ Hafan as a result of them taking part in the charity’s It’s A Knockout event held at the Vale Hotel in August.
The team, appropriately called “Funnybones”, battled hard on the day and although they did very well in the competition they obviously scored even higher in persuading their friends and colleagues to sponsor them.
“All the team had a really fantastic time on the day and we would like to thank everyone who supported and sponsored us to raise this amazing amount of money” ” said captain Sarah Hibberd who along with nine other team members faced a variety of challenges on the day, most of them involving water.
Helen Gibbons from Tŷ Hafan commented “On behalf of the children, young people and their families who access our services I would like to thank the team from Llandough for their great support”
“We were delighted with the enthusiastic response from all the teams on this first event of its kind that Tŷ Hafan has staged. Due to its success we will definitely be looking to organise it again next year.
