our 2017 running champions

A huge thank you to our 2017 team of Tŷ Hafan champions.  Together they have raised a staggering £18,210.03 which can do so much to support life-limited children and their families in Wales.  We had a fantastic time at our celebration event in June where we took part in an honouree  lap of the hospice with some of our children and families and also decorated our very own medals.
