Today we can confirm that our Caldicot Castle Dark Run on Saturday 21st October and our Cyfarthfa Castle Dark Run on Saturday 28th October will be going ahead as planned. 

If you have already signed up for these events then please continue with your fundraising for us as every pound you raise will be match-funded by Principality Building Society, which means the money you raise will be doubled (up to £12,500 for each event!)

It’s easy to get started with your fundraising – you can set your Enthuse fundraising page here:

We are also working hard to rearrange dates for Barry Dark Run and Swansea Bay Dark Run, which were cancelled due to the tragic loss of John Lewis, our much-loved freelance lighting and sound engineer, who died on Friday afternoon while helping to set up the stage for Barry Dark Run.

Jenna Lewis, Director of Income Generation at Tŷ Hafan Children’s Hospice, said: “A great deal of thought has been given about our next steps regarding these events and, as a great friend to Tŷ Hafan and someone who has supported our events for many years, we believe that this is what John would have wanted us to do.

“Further information about new dates for Barry and Swansea will be shared as soon as possible. Or if you had signed up for our Barry and Swansea events, you have the option to transfer to Caldicot Dark Run this Saturday or Cyfarthfa Castle Dark Run next weekend. If you would like to do this please contact or contact Supporter Care Team on 02920 532 255 or email

“Finally, we would like to thank everyone for their patience, understanding and continued loyal support during this most difficult of times. It costs us £5.6m a year to provide care and support for children with life-shortening conditions and their families in Wales and these costs are only going up. We could not do what we do without you.”
