little mix surprise for special sibling

written by Laura Mellens

Caring for the needs of siblings is a key part of what we do at Tŷ Hafan. One of our siblings, Neveah Mellens, was treated to a fantastic experience when the founder of Giovanni’s Restaurant’s and Cookery School donated two VIP tickets to the sold-out, Little Mix concert at the Motorpoint Arena plus a pre-show meal for four at his Park Place restaurant.
