Nearly 20 years ago, my nephew Connor was one of the first children to attend Tŷ Hafan.
Connor was diagnosed with a life-limiting condition and Tŷ Hafan was there for Connor, his two brothers and for my sister.
She has described Tŷ Hafan as her angels in what was the darkest time of her life.
Fast-forward to today and I’m pleased to say Connor is going for another yearly check-up. He lives his life on a table-full of drugs a month, but he lives a full life.
Without the support of Tŷ Hafan, I don’t believe Connor’s life would be as full as it is today.
This week I accepted a cheque for £14,471.10 from Costain and Vinci on behalf of the charity, following a year of events and fundraising activities organised by their staff.
The fundraising activities included a Cycle Challenge to Paris, team members running the Cardiff Half Marathon, an office lottery, charity sweet shops and money raised at two charity balls.
I am really grateful to Costain and their support teams for their considerable contribution and also for agreeing to deliver the Garden Project for the hospice. It’s great to see people getting involved.
It is also a fitting tribute to the memories my family has of the wonderful care they have received from Tŷ Hafan.
