Many celebrities have supported Tŷ Hafan since 1999 to help us offer comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families. 

By being the face of a campaign, helping us celebrate a milestone, attending an event or simply providing a quote or photo, they help Tŷ Hafan reach and connect with thousands of people.

leigh halfpennyLeigh Halfpenny

A Wales and British Lions rugby union superstar, Leigh became a Charity Ambassador for Tŷ Hafan in November 2013. Since then, Leigh made his first visit to our hospice in December, joining in with children and families as they enjoyed some Christmas festivities and games. In the same month, Leigh added the BBC Sports Personality of the Year runner-up prize to his 2013 Welsh Sports Personality of the Year award. Congratulations!

“Tŷ Hafan is one charity I was really excited about helping out and being part of. It was an obvious choice for me. The work they do here is incredible."

TV news presenter Lucy is regularly welcomed into our homes as part of the BBC’s Wales Today and X-Ray programmes. As a Tŷ Hafan Charity Ambassador since 2007, we’ve also been delighted to welcome Lucy to the hospice many times to meet the children and families we support. In 2008, this involved Lucy and her husband, Rhodri, launching our very own scout group. Plus, Lucy also donned a rather fetching cape and flashing headgear to take part in our 2013 Midnight Sleep Walk.

TV and radio presenter Rhodri is a familiar face and voice to many of us. As well as being the lead voice for Radio Wales, he has presented programmes such as BBC1’s Short Change, BBC2’s Britain’s Dream Homes and ITV’s Wish You Were Here...? Married to fellow Tŷ Hafan Charity Ambassador Lucy Owen, Rhodri has supported us in many ways since 2007, including hosting our Christmas carol concert in Cardiff’s City Hall.

“When you’re having a bad day, it’s very humbling to think of the incredible children and parents who Tŷ Hafan helps to support. They and the charity are a true inspiration.”
