Ty Hafan

#family friday

the best decision we ever made

Tuffin Ferraby Taylor (TFT) has recently enjoyed its fourth Property Quiz Night on behalf of Tŷ Hafan, where we raised £4,500 for this extremely worthy cause. We recognise our influence locally and to be able to attract 130 people from the Cardiff business community made for a very successful evening. Maybe having Miss Cardiff there as well had something to do with it along with a signed 2015 Welsh Rugby Team shirt and other valuable donated items to auction/raffle. All different means to a very deserving end, however.......


TFT’s Quiz Nights on behalf of Tŷ Hafan has now become an established feature of the Cardiff networking circuit and, so far, we are delighted to have generated over £15,000 through the generosity of our business contacts.

Although we are a national practice, the market is supported by a network of local offices. As we have a dominant regional office in Cardiff, we sought a charity which was rooted in our community and where we could see and experience the very tangible work being done by our nominated charity.


We choose to work with and support Tŷ Hafan for the sheer delight in being able to make a difference, however small, to these young and unfortunate lives. As building surveyors and property advisors who spend a large part of our working lives dealing with large valuable assets, it reconnects us with a more human and positive side to our nature.

We are often asked what benefits the fundraising has on our business, which suggests that it fits within a wider marketing programme. The reality is we don’t indulge in cheque book Corporate Social Responsibility. Our staff give their time freely and we know we can make more of a difference by influencing and involving our many business contacts than we can make alone. There are rewards, but we don’t benchmark them against business goals. All staff at TFT’s Cardiff office are involved in some way or another and view this as a chance to ‘put something back’ to our own community, quite frankly it is enjoyable and sel- rewarding by its very nature.

We are already thinking about the questions for the 2016 TFT Quiz Night.
