written by Chloe Payne

I don’t know about you, but I love rummaging through the rails of charity shops, vintage warehouses and second-hand stalls.

written by Rhiannon Clark

A few years ago, I personally didn’t know about Tŷ Hafan’s Children’s Hospice and the work they do, this was until a relative of mine started working at the hospice on the care team and now as a family support practitioner.

As a child, I would always look forward to that weekend in Spring when the London Marathon was taking place and would sit in anticipation to see the runners on the television.

written by Tara

For some strange reason I’ve always wanted to shave my hair off, but over the years when mentioning it to friends, always followed it with a reason (ahem, excuse!) not to do it.

billy and ed conquer the three peaks!

written by Ed Spence

When Billy and I first started planning the national three peaks challenge I’m sure we both had the same two thoughts; we will struggle to hit our target of £1,000 for Tŷ Hafan and the challenge won’t be that bad. We were wrong on both counts.

adorable dora brings lots of smiles

written by Lisa

I own a little Shih Tzu dog called Dora.  She is now 2 ½ years old and a very calm loving dog.  I knew very quickly as a puppy that she was very good at bringing happiness to others, especially me.
