Hundreds of people each year spend their free time raising essential funds for our care services. As far as we’re concerned, they’re all heroes. 

A dramatic chop

Christopher Guy is a big fan of Elvis Presley. His pride and joy was his jet-black Elvis-style hair and he bravely had it all shaved off as part of a wider fundraising event in Penarth Conservative Club to raise money for us! £1,056 was raised in total so, as Elvis would say, ‘thank you very much’! 

A winter wedding

Wedding bells were ringing on 30th December and Geraldine and Martin O’Sullivan asked for donations to Tŷ Hafan in lieu of gifts, raising £527.01 for us.

Congratulations, Geraldine and Martin, and thank you for your generosity! 

A Christmas display 

Guy Chapman is a long-time supporter of Tŷ Hafan. Every year, he sets up a Christmas scene outside his house in Dinas Powys and a Nativity display at Pugh’s Garden Centre to raise money for us. In total, he has raised an enormous £8,191.35. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us, Guy. 

The Firewalk

Some of our supporters even walk over embers for us! We hosted a Firewalk event at Cardiff City football stadium, where valiant fundraisers walked across a five-metre stretch of wood embers at 800 degrees in heat. And yes, they did it barefoot! This fundraising event raised £16,895.83, so here’s huge thanks to everyone who took part.
