heartfelt and poignant fundraiser

written by Kev Johns

I was honoured to have hosted a fundraising dinner for Tŷ Hafan, organised by Barclays Bank at the Marriott Hotel in Swansea.

Tŷ Hafan offers comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families so they can make the most of the time they have left together.
