rob tackles 100km ultra marathon for tŷ hafan

written by Rob Harrison

I did it! Saturday 28 May has been and gone and I can now very proudly say that I achieved my impossible dream of going from one half marathon to a 100km ultra marathon in just six months! People said I was crazy, people said it couldn't be done – but London to Brighton 100km...tick...done!

The theme for this year’s national Children’s Hospice Week (May 23 – 29) is ‘putting families first’ to highlight how children’s hospices like Tŷ Hafan help families treasure their precious time together.

I have been marshalling at the Taff Trail Cycle Challenge as a sweeper with the help of others for eight years now I think, this will be the ninth or tenth – I can never remember.

day in the life of a complementary therapy practitioner

written by abi tong

I have been lucky enough to be part of the Tŷ Hafan family for the last three years. I initially started as a volunteer not long after graduating from my degree at the end of 2012, before stepping in to cover a maternity leave post. I then became a sessional worker, before having a temporary part-time contract which finally became a full time permanent contract last November.
