My name is Chris and I am the new Membership Officer for Tŷ Hafan in mid and west Wales.
It is my job to recruit new members for the Crackerjackpot Lottery, which contributes a large amount of the necessary funding for Tŷ Hafan to continue to provide its vital work with life-limited children and their families.
We have around 40,000 lottery members supporting Tŷ Hafan throughout Wales, and we appreciate all your help however small, but we really need your continued support.
I am now in my third month at Tŷ Hafan and I am incredibly proud to be working for an organisation that carries out such tremendous work with children. When I visited the hospice in Sully, I was incredibly impressed with the facilities, and especially with the hard work that the staff put in both at the hospice itself and in communities across Wales.
What many people don’t know, is that a large proportion of the charity’s work is delivered in the community – whether that be at home, in hospital or at school. We care for 16 life-limited children in Ceredigion, including a lovely little girl who opened our new shop in Aberystwyth last month. It has been so inspiring to learn about the families supported by Tŷ Hafan and I will be thinking of them when I talk to new supporters.
If you live in mid or west Wales, you will hopefully see my friendly smile in your community and at events. I will be busy spreading the word about Tŷ Hafan’s amazing work with an aim to gain a few more supporters along the way.
