fundraising to a tee

written by Jayne Jenkins

Who would have thought that a club, a ball and a group of ambitious golf players could raise so much money for such a worthwhile cause? We certainly didn’t when we arranged our first Keepmoat Charity Golf Day in aid of Tŷ Hafan Children’s Hospice back in 2013.

Here at Tŷ Hafan we love hearing stories of what our supporters have decided to get up to to help raise money for us. We’ve had runners, swimmers, cyclists, skydivers, people wanting to grow their hair, and people wanting to shave it off.

chase the rainbow

written by Tŷ Hafan

Just last week, Tŷ Hafan held its third Rainbow Run in Porthcawl. It brought back great memories for the Narberth & Whitland Round Table as we sponsored a paint station at their Pendine Sands Rainbow Run last year. We were really pleased to support the event as Tŷ Hafan is very close to our hearts.
