Give in celebration

If you’re celebrating an occasion such as a wedding, birthday or anniversary, why not make it extra special by dedicating it to Tŷ Hafan?

By simply setting up a fundraising page and asking family and friends to give a donation rather than a gift, you can do something truly life-changing this year.

Weddings and civil partnerships

If you’re getting married or forming a civil partnership, there are a number of ways you can help to transform the lives of children with life-shortening conditions and their families.

  1. Buy some of our beautiful wedding favours and give them to guests on your big day.
  2. Request some of our donation envelopes and collection boxes for your tables and wedding venue.
  3. Set up a fundraising page and ask family and friends to give a donation instead of a wedding gift.

If you have any questions about turning your special occasion into a fundraiser, please don’t hesitate to contact our team on 02920 532199 or supportercare@tyhafan.org.

How your special day can transform lives

 

£25

Could pay for a family support worker to provide an hour of emotional support that helps a family cope better with challenges they face every day.

£50

Could pay for an hour of music therapy which offers children emotional support, escapism, relaxation and a way of expressing themselves.

£231

Could pay for a specially trained nurse to care for a child throughout the night, giving parents precious time off from being a carer.

£458

Could pay for arts and crafts materials for children to use in play therapy sessions for a whole year.

£1,000

Could pay for all the medical supplies used at the hospice for a month 

The reason I picked the Tŷ Hafan badges for our wedding favours was due to our late father, who was a supporter of Tŷ Hafan, he donated every month to the charity and then when he sadly passed away we set up a Charity fund so that all proceeds went to the charity that he had chosen which was Tŷ Hafan so when we started wedding planning it was a no brainer for us that we would choose Tŷ Hafan badges for our favours and donated money at the same time.
