Ty Hafan

#family friday

ready, trek, go!

Hello to all of our amazing supporters! My name is James and I have the real pleasure of being part of the fundraising team here at Tŷ Hafan.


Thanks for tuning in to this week's Family Friday, brought to you all the way from China, 4,977 miles away.

According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster. 2017 is also a very special year for Tŷ Hafan. We turned 18 in January and what better way to celebrate than with our first overseas challenge to China, trekking the Great Wall over five days? That’s exactly what a group of Tŷ Hafan heroes have been doing all this week, clocking up a total of 30 hours trekking in the sweltering Chinese heat.

It's a Tŷ Hafan first and that makes it really special. It's great to be here with our amazing supporters every step of the way. So far as a group they've raised over £60,000, which is absolutely incredible - so a big well done to everyone for their fundraising efforts over the last few months. 

The really nice thing about this trip is everyone at Tŷ Hafan has got involved and got on board with it. A big thank you to the care team, all the hospice staff, the children and everyone over in Head Office as well for supporting all our activities.

Finally, a big thank you to all of our Fire Roosters out there doing amazing things in the community and beyond. Your dedication and support means that Tŷ Hafan can be there for more families right across Wales who need us for the next 18 years.

You really are part of the family.
