When your World Stops appeal

For many, Christmas means precious time with loved ones and magical moments. But for some families, this time of year can also highlight feelings of loss. With your help we can make sure that families don’t have to face Christmas alone.

We’ve launched our biggest ever festive fundraising appeal, When Your World Stops to raise the vital funds we need for our nurses and specialist services.

Our 60 hour urgent appeal raised over £500,000, huge thanks to all those who were able to donate during this timeDonations to this campaign are no longer being matched, but every penny of your donation will support more children and families like Alfi, Besi, Sara & Jason.

We visit Tŷ Hafan on a regular basis. I can’t begin to describe what Tŷ Hafan means to us as a family, but one thing I do know is I will be eternally grateful for the memories they have allowed us to make and continue to make to this day.

Alfi’s story

Alfi and Besi Morris“Tŷ Hafan was recommended to us when Alfi and Besi were 9 months old. We didn’t know what it was back then, but the thought of being referred to a children’s hospice was horrendous. You never want to think of your child going into a hospice but Tŷ Hafan wasn’t anything like we imagined it to be. We thought it would just be a place where very poorly children go to die. We couldn’t have been more wrong,”

Sara tells us.

We couldn’t imagine our lives without Tŷ Hafan now. It doesn’t feel like a hospice.

“The support they have given us has been incredible. There were times when Alfi was rushed into hospital and Tŷ Hafan staff were already there waiting for us, making sure we had a bed and everything we needed. They were our lifeline.

We lived with the reality that every Christmas together with Alfi could be our last.

“Alfi died peacefully in his dad’s arms on 1st March, St David’s Day and our wedding anniversary. Every year on the 1st March, we go to Tŷ Hafan. It’s our safe haven.

Even 8 years on from Alfi’s death, it’s still our home from home. “At Tŷ Hafan, you don’t have to put a brave face on. Youdon’t have to pretend that everything is ok, because every family understands how you feel.

“There’s not a day that goes by when we don’t think of Alfi. When we see the moon, we all think of Alfi because he’s our little boy in the moon – that’s what we used to tell Besi – so he’s always with us.
