Donate in memory

Giving in memory to Tŷ Hafan is a very special way to remember a loved one and help make a child’s short life a full life.

Your generous gift will help to fund vital care and support, when it’s needed most, at our hospice and in homes and communities across Wales.


How you can give in memory

Create an online tribute page

Setting up an online memorial page is a lovely way to remember someone special and raise money to support our life-changing services.  

Once you create your space, family and friends can give a gift to Tŷ Hafan, leave messages, share memories, add photos and organise events in memory of a loved one. 

Funeral and memorial collections

If you’d like to ask people attending a funeral or memorial service to give a gift to Tŷ Hafan, maybe instead of flowers, we are here to help you. 

We can answer any questions you may have about doing this, provide you with sealable envelopes for gifts, and send you information about Tŷ Hafan to include in an order of service or something similar. 

Please get in touch with our Supporter Care team on 02920 532 255 or at supportercare@tyhafan.org to find out more. 

Give a caring virtual gift

We have a selection of virtual gifts you can buy in memory of a loved one. These include the gift of specialist sensory toys and the gift of a nurse for 24 hours. 

These gifts are available as a digital download or a physical item. You can also personalise your gift with the name of a loved one who has died, your name, or the name of someone you’d like to send the gift to. 

Remember those that hold a special place in your heart

You can order a personalised wooden heart-shaped plaque for a suggested donation of £20. On the plaque, you can have engraved the name of a loved one, a special message and a date that’s meaningful to you. 

By commemorating your love in this way, you can help Tŷ Hafan’s children and families create precious memories they can hold onto forever.

Fundraising in Memory

“It’s a meaningful way to make a positive impact during a tough time”.

An impactful way to remember a loved one when Tŷ Hafan held a special place in their heart is to fundraise in their memory. This could be a physical challenge, like Chris’ or holding an event, such as a tea party. Read about Chris’ experience of fundraising in Erin’s memory below.

Micaela and Cai’s story

Your gift in memory of a loved one will provide vital support to children like Cai and parents like Micaela. 

Cai was diagnosed with the ultra-rare condition Vici syndrome as a child and sadly died when he was just 12. But throughout his short life, Micaela says Cai was a happy and fulfilled young boy because of the specialist support he received from Tŷ Hafan.

Visit our memorial beach

Our hospice is situated directly on the coast of Sully Bay. To replicate the beautiful tranquility of the location, we have created a virtual memorial beach. This is a special place where you can remember a loved one with a photo and dedication. This could be because they were cared for by Tŷ Hafan, supported our work or simply were an incredibly special person.
